This week, details surfaced of Blair’s mysterious death but didn’t generate widespread news coverage.

Taemon Blair, a 21 year old black young man from Charlotte, NC was found hung to death inside of the trailer of his 18 wheeler, while working on the road & preparing for the arrival of his child in Fort Wayne, IN. The incident happened on 3-15-19, but seems to only be mentioned on social media… Yup, you guessed it, no news coverage! He was lynched, but the officials have ruled his death as a suicide. Taemon was a great kid, graduated from West Charlotte High School with straight A’s and he was also an excellent father and provider. Suspected, there were signs of a struggle. (Ear Kandy Radio)
