Amani Kildea was a solid athlete. He played basketball, soccer, and football for his high school. He was actually leaning towards attending James Madison University, but that all ended when he was found hanging from a tree in Lewis Morris Park on June 28. His family is outraged because the death was quickly ruled a suicide.
Morris County authorities said Friday they’d found no evidence of criminal wrongdoing to this point in the hanging park death of a 20-year-old Amani Kildea, of Long Valley. His death had been ruled a suicide.
That has sparked a huge problem in the community. Kildea is the son of a pastor. The investigators were quick to rule it a suicide, and now people are upset in the community because the investigators are now reverse their initial comments by saying it is an ongoing investigation.
The people of Morris County and of Roxbury are pissed, and demand answers. They started a petition and are asking for everyone to sign it.
A Change.org petition called “Justice for Amani Kildea” launched by Taylor Packwood, however, had garnered more than 31,000 signatures as of Friday afternoon.
This should at the very least be investigated thoroughly. I think the family and Amani deserve that, so please help if you can by signing the petition above.
Please pray for the Kildea family at this tough time. God Bless you all!
