    yep, not to mention the reality is that while hanging and lynching was popular in the slave days and extreme racist days of this country the term lynching actually has nothing to do with race lol

    it comes from "lynch mob" and wild west days where vigilant hangings took place, not race. So the assumption that the word is used based on race is a personal subjective one and has nothing to do with the word lynch

    Well...I responded to you saying "if it's a murder why is it called a lynching?". Well if it's a murder it's not a suicide.
    That doesn't make it a lynching as we know it. It makes it a murder by hanging, unless there is evidence that it was racially motivated as lynchings once were.

    Mother says not his belts. Shoes that don't fit disappeared? Nothing showing how he hanged himself? No motive for suicide?

    It sounds the was a murder. Covered in fire ants suggest he was killed elsewhere and then moved there.

    Re: N.C. teen's hanging death ruled a suicide; mother says it was a lynching

    A small rural and poor town predominately white. Almost certainly a murder. They should investigate those who know the 31 year old white woman he was sexually involved with. The motive likely is found there.

    As of the census[1] of 2000,[dated info] there were 1,718 people, 762 households, and 471 families residing in the town. The population density was 789.5 people per square mile (304.3/km˛). There were 832 housing units at an average density of 382.3 per square mile (147.4/km˛). The racial makeup of the town was 80.33% White, 17.81% African American, 0.93% Native American, 0.17% Pacific Islander, 0.47% from other races, and 0.29% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 1.22% of the population.
    There were 762 households out of which 26.1% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 42.8% were married couples living together, 15.0% had a female householder with no husband present, and 38.1% were non-families. 36.0% of all households were made up of individuals and 18.1% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.19 and the average family size was 2.83.
    In the town the population was spread out with 22.8% under the age of 18, 6.5% from 18 to 24, 24.9% from 25 to 44, 25.3% from 45 to 64, and 20.4% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 42 years. For every 100 females there were 85.5 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 78.0 males.
    The median income for a household in the town was $19,300, and the median income for a family was $30,900. Males had a median income of $28,438 versus $21,154 for females. The per capita income for the town was $15,102. About 23.2% of families and 30.0% of the population were below the poverty line, including 46.9% of those under age 18 and 23.9% of those age 65 or over.

    Both the belts & shoes information has come from the family, not the investigation. The locals have involved the FBI because the family refuses to talk with them.

    While its fun to speculate, at this point there isn't enough information to suggest any nefarious occurred.

    There is plenty of information to "suggest" a murder occurred.

    So then why is the NAACP there if this has nothing to do with race? Why did the article talk about how if this was a white man who was found hung everyone would be a suspect? Just collateral information with no real purpose?
