Jelani Day, a university graduate, mysteriously disappeared and was subsequently declared dead. Jelani’s family and the legal representative are asking to Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct a fair trial. So the primary cause of death can be assessed as the family seeing the matter as a murder case. 

Carmen Bolden Day, the mother of late Jelani Day, joined a news conference in Chicago with her attorney Benjamin Crump on Friday, 3rd December. She was stressing on the drowning death scene was more likely looking like a murder case.  

His mother also accursed Peru’s police behavior, as they are not proved as helpful in finding her son. She added more, investigations in her son’s case are not enough as compared to extensive searches were conducted to find a missing white lady Gabby Petito. 

The grieving mother pours her heart out by saying that Jelani is missing. She cannot talk to him every morning, as her son is more important to her. This is pinching her every day because after months officials could not find and save him immediately. 

In August, this sad incident of Day’s missing happened. Later in September, his body was found in a river. Police told the media that by surveillance cameras they found Day entering a store in Bloomington. And he was wearing a black graphic T-shirt, black shoes and white shorts.  

The official also briefed about his Chrysler 300 white 2010 and clothing was found near Illinois Valley. In October, police declared the death from drowning and said, unfortunately, there is no specific autopsy proof from drowning. Drowning is considered an excluding diagnosis in any situation where an individual is found dead in a river or lake.
