Thread on the "mysterious" deaths of prominent activists, starting with Ferguson, extending into the past, and will be updated.

1. Edward Crawford, possibly the most well-known Ferguson death. He was the subject of an iconic photo in which he was throwing a tear gas canister back at cops. He was found dead from "suicide" on May 5, 2017. Rest in power.

2. Darren Seals, another death of another Ferguson activist under mysterious yet horrifying conditions. His car was set aflame and he was shot on September 6, 2016. Rest in power.

3. Danye Jones, the late son of Melissa McKinnies, an active Ferguson activist. He was found hanging from a bed sheet behind their house in October 2018. Melissa posted later, "They lynched my baby." Facebook deleted her words. Rest in power, Danye.

4. Deandre Joshua, a Ferguson activist and friend of the sole witness in the Michael Brown case, a member of a family of Ferguson activists, died the exact same way Darren died on the night of the Michael Brown case verdict. He was just 20. Rest in power.

5. TODAY: Bassem Masri, a Palestinian Ferguson activist and live streamer. He was found dead of "currently unknown" causes, but will be remembered forever in his fight for liberation of oppressed peoples. Rest in power, Bassem.

6. Muhiyidin d'Baha, a Black Lives Matter activist famously known for jumping a cop barricade and snatching a Confederate flag. He was assassinated on February 6, 2018, with police "being unable to identify" the cause of his murder. Rest in power.

The Very American Killing of Nia Wilson | The New Yorker
> Her [Nia Wilson's] killing is not, as Oakland’s mayor, Libby Schaaf, said, "senseless." It is not, as implied by the San Francisco Chronicle’s headline—"Divergent Paths Met Tragically on Oakland Platform"—the result of some awful serendipity. It is a reflection of how this country values the lives of black women.

Even in death, no rest for civil rights icon
13 July 2009

CHICAGO — When his mother put the battered body of 14-year-old Emmett Till in the ground more than 50 years ago, it was supposed to be the end of a sad saga for the boy whose murder became a rallying point for the civil-rights movement.

But even in death, Till cannot rest. Four years after his body was exhumed as part of an investigation, his original glass-topped casket has been found in a rusty shed at a suburban cemetery where workers are accused of digging up and dumping hundreds of bodies in a scheme to resell the burial plots.

The casket, which was seen by mourners around the world in 1955, was surrounded by garbage and old headstones. When authorities opened it, a family of possums scampered out.
