The body of a black male was reportedly found near Canfield Green Apartments in Ferguson, the same complex where Michael Brown was fatally shot by officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9th.

[su_center_ad]CBS St. Louis reports that the unidentified man, described as in his 20s, was shot to death and set on fire.

The body was found at around 9:00 a.m. in a white Pontiac car with Illinois plates which was parked in a driveway.

The driver’s side window was shot out and there are no details as to who owns the vehicle.

The investigation is being classified as a suspicious death. The cause is still under investigation.

The St. Louis County Police Department released the following statement:

“The St. Louis County Police Department is on the 9400 block of Glenn Owen in Ferguson, MO, near the intersection of Windwood and Glenn Owen.

At approximately 9 a.m. today, a citizen reported that an unresponsive man was inside a parked vehicle at that location. Responding officers discovered a deceased male inside the vehicle.

No information on the identity of the man or additional information about the man, ownership of the car or circumstances leading up to the discovery. … Detectives from the St. Louis County Crimes Against Persons are enroute to conduct the investigation.
This incident is currently being classified as a suspicious death and will remain so until evidence allows a different classification. No further information at this time.”

      They’ll blame Twitter.

        This is the guy the KKK was trying to kill. They instigated the riots for cover.

      I know that after I shoot myself through the car window, I always finish by setting myself on fire…

      • Hirightnow November 25th, 2014 at 4:25 pm

        Who doesn’t?

          Sigh–I think it’s time for a little something…

    His name was Deandre Joshua, 20 years old, He was a witness who testified before the grand jury.. He never had any trouble with the law, he graduated high school and worked at the local Walmart. In all likelihood he was murdered by someone angry about wilson not being indicted.

      He was a witness who testified before the grand jury..

      Where did you get that?

    • tracey marie November 25th, 2014 at 10:41 pm

      why do you have to lie all the time, why?

    • Beamer Beamer November 26th, 2014 at 2:05 am

      Why would he be killed by the protesters? He was killed by the KKK or the KKKops.

      Drop a link, especially citing this:

      “In all likelihood he was murdered by someone angry about wilson not being indicted.”

      Otherwise, you will be considered a troll.

        At GlobalGrind commentor Kenny Loc writes:

        I believe his friend was killed as payback for being a witness for the state. I also believe Dorian Johnson was offered immunity for testifying as a witness for the state, for which he is now in hiding. People may be pissed because it broke the street code of not snitching. In some communities, thats a death sentence. Mike Brown’s people are allegedly connected to the Bloods, so I’m sure there is no shortage of “killers” willing to take care of business for a dead homie.

        In other words whoever did Deandre was trying to get to Dorian Johnson.

        • Anomaly 100 November 27th, 2014 at 8:04 pm

          Not following you at all. I’ll have to find some time to Google this since Red Eye Robot refused as usual to cite his source, and you don’t have a link.

          Dorian, Deandre….Let’s see, I’m sure there’s a connection other than both names begin with a D.

          • greenfloyd November 27th, 2014 at 8:35 pm

            Dorian Johnson and Deandre Joshua are rummored to be confidants. The theroy is Deandre was killed in a hunt for Johnson. There seems to be two main notions as to suspects and motives; snitch payback or friends of Willson.

          • Anomaly 100 November 27th, 2014 at 8:39 pm

            I’d love to know who took this young man’s life and why. I wonder if there’s any chance of getting to the bottom of it in that town.

          • greenfloyd November 28th, 2014 at 5:36 pm

            I am not optimistic either, Ferguson PD Chief Kelly presented the killing as an “Oh by the way we found a body this morning…” Sort of sums up the local political establishment’s attitude and how things have gotten so messed-up in the first place. I fear we have not seen the last act of retribution and Dorian Johnson is no-doubt a marked man.

          • Anomaly 100 November 28th, 2014 at 5:41 pm

            What is your take on it? I’m asking because I value your opinion and enjoy your comments.

          • greenfloyd November 28th, 2014 at 7:16 pm

            Well thank you 🙂 , and I appreciate your tireless work here on LL.

            Monday night Richard Taylor, a resident of the now infamous Canfield apartments, says he called police about overhearing four people armed with guns talking about looting and killing someone. No cops respond to the alleged call, and next day DeAndre Joshua is found dead in his car nearby. It would be interesting to know if there is any record of this call and it’s true why no one was sent.

            I believe Joshua was murdered, execution-style a single bullet to the head. His killer/s set his body on fire; that was either an attempt to destroy evidence, or to demonstrate extreme contempt, instill fear. BTW some media report Joshua was a GJ witness, although that does not appear to be the case, by most accounts I’ve seen so far. Of course his “brother,” Dorian, did testify and is now somewhere under “protection.”

            Here’s Dorian’s last Tweet that I know of:

    • RJ K November 28th, 2014 at 12:30 pm

      In all likelihood, he was killed by someone who supports Wilson.

    Oh man, Ferguson MO seems to be coming apart at the seams.
