Gruesome murder in Mississippi

    In addition to Rasheem Carter's head being severed, his spinal cord was recovered in a separate area from his head, according to Crump.

    In total his body parts have been found in 3 places. Amazingly, local police said there was “no evidence of foul play” even when the man went to police twice in the days leading up to his disappearance last October claiming many white members of the community (“three truckloads” according to his mother) were trying to do harm to him (a black man). They originally claimed feral animals did this to him:

    The apparent discovery of the skull nuked that theory

    Smith County Sheriff Joel Houston told ABC News in March that earlier evidence of the case "didn't suggest" any foul play, stressing that "nothing is being swept under the rug."

    The DOJ being called to independently investigate.

    The family is organizing a protest against the police over their handling of it:

    "From the beginning of this case, the family has been misled," Crump said. "At first, when the first of Rasheem's remains were discovered with his head decapitated from his body, officials told the family that it was animals that killed Rasheem. Then officials admitted that they believed he was murdered."
