Jelani Day’s Mother Holds March and Press Conference in Bloomington, Illinois

Bloomington, Illinois–The mother of Jelani Day continues to advocate for answers into her sons death. More questions than answers have developed in the disappearance and death of 25-year-old Jelani Day. The Illinois Sate University grad student went missing late August, after his professor reported him missing. His car was found two days later and his body was recovered soon after–although his family was not notified of the discovery until nearly three weeks later. His death has been ruled a drowning but his mother and family want to know how his car ended up 60 miles away from the university town, driven onto a trail, with the license plates removed and parts of his clothing found in the vehicle.
