“[Investigators] are aware that DeAndre Joshua died in the same kind of way,” spokesman for St. Louis County police Sgt. Shawn McGuire said as he assures investigation into Darren Seals’ case.
Currently, the police of St. Louis are trying to reconcile the circumstances surrounding the death of a famous Black activist, Darren Seals and a protester who was killed in 2014 during a Ferguson, Missouri demonstration.

Seals, a 29-year-old Black activist who was at the forefront for the call for justice following the death of Micheal Brown was murdered in the early hours of Tuesday. The Black activist was found dead in a torched vehicle.
Suspiciously, the circumstances surrounding Darren Seals’ death can be appropriately likened to that of 20-year-old DeAndre Joshua. Joshua was killed two years ago. He was shot in the head and was also left to burn in a car. According to the New York Daily News, Joshua was murdered on the night a judge had declined to slap any charge on Officer Darren Wilson for shooting Micheal Brown to death.

Sgt. Shawn McGuire, spokesman for the St. Louis County police told The Daily News that “[Investigators] are aware that DeAndre Joshua died in the same kind of way.” He also added that “Anything’s a possibility. Our detectives are always going to look into different avenues, or if it’s the same kind of motive.”
The police are looking into the two murder cases to ascertain any link between the two.
Damn. It looks like Darren Seals was killed the same way as DeAndre Joshua. https://t.co/w8G4Rwdvw2

In the meantime, there hasn’t been any arrest yet in connection with Darren Seals’ death.
On the other hand, the puzzle surrounding the death of Joshua still stays vague.
Some conspiracy theorists are of the view that, the Black activist, Joshua was killed because he testified during a jury investigation into Brown’s death, Inquisitr reports. These allegations have yet not been substantiated by the police.
Let’s keep it all the way real, Darren Seals was assassinated and whoever did it is trying to send us a message.https://t.co/uKfTNMASiO

It is really wary that two activists die in the same way. And what is actually unbelievable is the fact that the police have yet not been able to even make any arrest as at now. Even the case of Joshua remains hanging.
It seems the American police are just not interested in Black people. They are quick to arrest and shoot innocent and unarmed Black men but are always unwilling to protect them. Are we all guarded by the same laws? Does the law enforcement only exist for the white folks? America needs to give us some answers!
