What happened to Elijah Weatherspoon? – #WhatHappenedtoElijahWeatherspoon? #BLM

This story isn’t getting justice for the mob style killing of Elijah! Shultzy has all the corresponding social media for this matter here.

Elijah Weatherspoon was on a boat with 7 white people. 7 white people! Was someone trying to boat out like Tony in The Sopranos? How did he get on the boat to begin with?

These 7 people cannot seem to agree on a story as to what happened on the boat. Mount Pleasant PD has been so tight lipped about what they know about the investigation. They insist that they are taking the word of the 7 individuals, and won’t seem to budge on any other possible outcomes, insisting the case is closed, similar to Ahmaud Arbery case in Georgia.

There are two petitions demanding the police department do a more through investigation. You can view them here and here.

Here is one take from the first petition as to what happened.

On the night of June 25th, 2020 Elijah, a Black/Puerto Rican 18 year old male, went boating in the Cooper River in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina with 7 of his white friends. Elijah did not come home that night. His body was found June 28th, 2020 in the Cooper River. 

The events leading up to his death are unclear and are being treated as if he was just another black man who couldn’t swim and drowned. When, in fact, he can swim. The people who were with him have stories that do not match up.

He fell off the boat and hit his head on a rock.

He fell off the boat and his friend tried to save him and couldn’t.

He jumped off the boat himself and refused to get back in and drowned. 

Those are just some of the circumstances his family has been told. The police will not investigate further and the local news is no longer reporting on Elijah.

He was found on a sandbar three days later. Let’s get justice for Elijah.
