In honor of Black History Month I’m profiling one African-American MP every day on this blog for the month of February. Today’s case is Jamir Bashir Richardson, a 30-year-old who disappeared from Wilmington, Delaware on May 14, 2012.
The circumstances seem to indicate suicide: Jamir was despondent over the loss of his job and had told his wife he felt suicidal, and his car was found abandoned next to the Christina River with all his stuff inside.
However, the bodies of most suicide victims are found, and Jamir’s never was. I wonder how thoroughly they searched the river for him.
