Insane this precious life taken brutally, so soon… RIP Darren Seals
Ferguson, MO – Ferguson activist and Hip Hop musician Darren Seals, 29, was found dead inside of a burning car Tuesday (September 6) in North St. Louis County, The St. Louis American reports.
Seals was found to have suffered a gunshot wound before the car was set on fire early Tuesday morning at approximately 1:50 a.m, when the Bureau of Crimes Against Persons and Bomb and Arson Unit were called.
The St. Louis County Police Department is treating the incident as a homicide.
Darren was well-known locally in the city for his activism following the death of Mike Brown, an unarmed black teenager who was fatally shot by a white Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014.
He was right beside Brown’s mother, Lezley McSpadden, when prosecutors announced in November 2014 that a grand jury had decided not to indict Wilson in Brown’s death.
