Ferguson activist found fatally shot in burning car


When Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer two years ago, Darren Seals was one of the most vocal activists leading protests across the city. He rallied a boycott of Democratic candidates in local elections after he said they failed to protect black lives. And on the day a grand jury declined to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, Seals held Brown’s mother in his arms as she sobbed.

On Tuesday, Seals was found dead, authorities said, in a burning car outside the city. He was 29.

Officers with the St. Louis County Police Department responded to a vehicle fire in the northern part of the county about 1:50 a.m., reported the St. Louis American. When they arrived, authorities found Seals body inside the charred car. He had been shot, police told the newspaper.
