In an unexpected twist in the case of Jelani Day’s gruesome murder, the deceased student’s mother has now challenged the assertion that critical organs were removed from his body. Jelani Day’s body was discovered in a gruesome state, with his eyeballs, brain, liver, and spleen missing and his genitalia almost unidentifiable, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Day’s family attorney, Hallie Bezner, claimed his organs were “totally liquified,” according to the Chicago Sun-Times article.
Who is Jelani Day’s mother?
Day’s mother, Carmen Bolden-Day, has officially verified that no organs from her son’s body were missing. “No organs were gone,” she said, dismissing previous allegations. I don’t want to get too far away from the facts. Although there were discrepancies between the preliminary autopsy and the second independent autopsy, this is not an instance of organ harvesting. My son, on the other hand, did not dive into a river. My kid was killed, and it is my mission and aim to figure out what occurred and make those who are guilty accountable.”
Jelani Day’s mother had voiced dissatisfaction with the lack of publicity of her son’s case before his body was recovered on September 4, 2021. “I was really angry that Jelani hadn’t been getting the publicity,” Carmen Day remarked. Jelani has been absent for a month and a half. It looks that assistance has come to an end. I’m begging, appealing, and requesting that the cops continue to hunt for my kid.” “Her face is splashed everywhere, and the FBI is engaged,” she said, referring to Gabby Petito’s case. And I’m not sure why Jelani doesn’t get the same kind of publicity or attention.”
The Illinois State University student went missing on August 25, but just recently came to light due to the enormous interest in Gabby Petito’s case. The corpse of the 25-year-old student was discovered floating in the Illinois River, but it took 19 days to identify him, generating outrage on social media about the disparity between the cases of White and Black people.
Social media erupted with heated cries for ‘Justice For Jelani’ as soon as the Chicago Sun-Times story regarding missing organs was published. Carmen Bolden-Day has disregarded the gruesome possibilities and claimed that Jelani Day’s death was murder with nefarious motivations. It wasn’t suicide, as the FBI had previously stated, nor was it a case of organ harvesting.
The LaSalle County Coroner’s Office, which performed the autopsy on Day’s remains, has not yet commented on the accusations of missing organs, according to WMBD. Meanwhile, the LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office is continuing their investigation.
