Why is the media hiding this story?



Jersey City, N.J. – A disturbing report is being circulated among various news outlets that a Black man was found hanging from a tree in a Jersey City, New Jersey park.

The lifeless body of the unidentified man, who appeared to be in his 60’s, was found in Lafayette Park on the morning of August 6, 2013.  NJ.com reports that a woman “who was walking on Manning Avenue near Lafayette Street just outside the park,” saw the man and immediately reported the incident to police officials.

Gene Rubino, who is the spokesman for the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, said that the man was taken to Jersey City Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.  He also told NJ.com “that foul play is not suspected and that there were no visible signs of trauma or assault.”

A woman who identifies herself as Nurse Tonya tells a different story.  In the comment section posted on NJ.com, she writes, “I was there alone, in my truck, taking my two toddlers to the park to meet their daycare, and then on my way to work. I take the cobble stone road as a short cut and as I looked beyond the trees to see where the class was, I was curious why the park was COMPLETELY empty. I lowered my eyes as I was slowing down to see a man “Kneeling” yet hung from a tree.”

She then wrote that she called 911 but never got out of her car as she had her two children.  She also wrote that what she saw didn’t appear to be suicide because his hands were tied behind his back.  She wrote, “I saw the truth!  I have two baby boys and am DEVASTATED that I have had to explain to toddlers why they saw a man hanging from a tree. Get the 911 tape and set the truth straight! I am mortified, insulted, and saddened but I will not be silent no [sic] that I feel there is inaccuracy.”

We tried reaching out to the Jersey City police media department, but our calls went unanswered.

For now, Lafayette Park remains closed as Police investigate this heinous incident.

I pray this was a suicide.

If this was a lynching I  fear it won't be the last.
