Allen County coroner released case “facts” in matters of Taemon Blair

Allen County Sheriff’s Office released a 4-page report this week after Taemon Blair’s story “broke the internet” by going viral. Blair’s tragic and mysterious death at what was believed to be a positive time in his life leaves his family uneasy and wanting an investigation further into his death. Allen Co. authorities have ruled Blair’s death a suicide by hanging and the internet says it was a lynching. In many posts it has been alleged that Blair’s hands were bound, authorities confirmed that to be false. Much of the black community believes that black people do not commit suicide by hangings due to the history of our ancestors being lynched. Whereas, statistical data shows that black americans have in fact chosen this method in the past. However, the method utilized and often the cause of suicide is usually tied to cultural, religious and family beliefs or matters per The National Center for Biotechnology Information.

If you or someone you know are experiencing suicidal thoughts, please reach out to someone or call the National Suicide Hotline: 1-800-273-8255. #TaemonBlair #MysteryOfTaemonBlair
