72-Year-Old Black Woman Found Hanging From Tree In Maryland

Police officers in Annapolis, Maryland, confirmed that a 72-year-old woman was found hanging from a tree.

Authorities found the woman’s dead body on November 3  on the 600 block of Belle Drive near the Annapolis Walk Community Center.

A press release, given by the Annapolis Police Department the next day, officers provided more details, saying at approximately 7:30 a.m., they were called to the 600 block of Belle Drive for the report of “an unattended death.”

“Preliminary investigation reveals the incident does not appear to be criminal in nature,” the press release stated.

Longtime civil rights activist Carl Snowden, from Annapolis, confirmed the news on a Facebook post, which said the deceased body belonged to an African American woman.

Snowden told REVOLT that the woman was found hanging from a tree. Snowden was on the scene and was able to identify the victim’s race.

“People are waiting to see what the medical examiner determines the cause of death is, and people will respond accordingly,” he says.

Officials have not yet released the woman’s identity.

Apparently, young children on a bus headed to a local elementary school witnessed the hanging body that morning police responded.

“While walking to the bus stop this morning, some students may have witnessed a tragic scene involving the death of an adult individual,” Richard Rogers and Casey Hunt, principals of Mills-Parole Elementary and Annapolis Middle School, wrote in a letter to parents obtained by the Capital Gazette.

  5. That’s abbot is disgusting. It’s clearly obvious she was lenched. They enjoy doing these thing to us for decades now.. it’s time we fight back now!

  6. I am from Annapolis and that was a very sad day to here the news of this woman passing. The first thing it reminded me of was when I was a kid and the KKK would hold a rally every year in Annapolis. They use to come to the black neighborhoods at night and put flyers all over the cars, mailboxes, and doors. It use to say what they were going to do to all the black men, women, and children. It was the 3 days out of the school year when we were not allowed to go to school. My mother kept us home the day before, the day of , and the day after. It has got to get better, this is crazy. No 72 year old woman is going to climb a tree tie a rope around it and herself and then jump. People I know that knew her said she was a sweet loving woman, who loved her family especially her grandchildren. Whoever did this needs to be held accountable.

  7. This happens because our men in that town are weak and the demons that lynched her know it. Unless there is an eye for an eye, these killings will continue to happen.
