On the morning of August 29, 2014, 17-year-old high school football player Lennon Lacy was found dead, hanging by his neck from a swing set in Bladenboro, N.C. News reports focused on the way he died, calling it a “lynching.” Within a week, local and state police had completed their investigation: they called it suicide. Shaun Assael examines Lacy’s death, talks with his family and friends, and learns there is much more to this story than had been previously reported.

“Quick, too quick to say it was suicide.” — Claudia Lacy, Lennon’s mother, describing the police investigation into her son’s death

“I am an ordained minister, so I’ll just say that we’re going to play with grace, the fruits of the spirit, you know. I’m sure if anyone sneezes they’ll be a lot of ‘bless yous.’” – Rev. Chris Lee, batsman for Church of England team
