Trigger Warning: Mention of violence, death, and lynching to a BIPOC individual. On June 9, 2020, a pedestrian found 27-year-old Dominique Alexander hanging on a tree in Fort Tryon Park. Given a long history of lynching in the U.S., coupled with the hanging of Robert Fuller in California a few days earlier and the fact that nooses were found in Van Cortlandt Park, many speculated that Alexander – who went by the nickname “Domo”– had been lynched. After conducting a 66-minute investigation, local authorities declared Alexander’s death a hanging by suicide. The quick investigation left his family and community members confused and full of questions.
