"You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one." This hand-cut and hand-stamped brass plate piece bears the word ‘dreamer’. I carefully hammered the plate to give it depth and texture in the light. The stamping has been filled with a permanent black patina wax to better define the image. A delicate 17" oxidized brass link chain completes the necklace, with a matching lobster clasp at the back. #fawneyfortune #etsy #handmade #handmadejewelry #etsyjewelry #jewelry #necklace #dreamer #wanderlust #moonchild #etchedplate #etchedplatenecklace #stamped #stampedmetal #lennon #johnlennon #boho #mystic #instafashion (at www.FawneyFortune.etsy.com)




The picture you see above is 17 yr old Lennon Lacy. On Aug. 29 he was found hanging from a swing set near a trailer park a couple hours before he was about to play in his High-School Football game that night. The autopsy showed he died of asphyxiation from hanging and his death was ruled a suicide. yeah that’s right a fucking SUICIDE. wait it gets worse.

here are the things you need to know:

  • Lump on his head - Lacy’s mother, Claudia, noticed scratches and abrasions on the teen’s face when authorities led her to the black body bag holding her son
  • He was wearing someone elses shoes - The gray and neon green Jordans Lacy bought just a few days before he died were gone. Instead, the teenager was wearing a pair of size 10.5 white sneakers with the laces removed. Lacy wore a size 12. His family members did not recognize the sneakers as his own. His shoes were never found.
  • The shoes were missing when they were sent to the medical examiner - he said that he found that odd since it isn’t protocal to remove the victims clothing (aka didnt want them to pick up dna)
  • It was impossible for him to hang himself -  “there was no item present at the scene that Lennon could have stood on, applied the noose and then kicked away,” and there were no swings hanging from the swing set that Lacy— who was 5 feet, nine inches tall and weighed more than 200 pounds— could have used to elevate himself the seven-foot crossbeam of the swing set.
  • He had recently entered a relationship with a 31 yr old White girlfriend months before his death - His girlfriend mentioned alot of people would bother her about having a black bf to the point where they had to lie about being together.
  • He was hung with a dog leash and belt - both items were not his..
  • The FBI wouldn’t allow medical examiner to take pictures - They even threatened to confiscate the camera even though it’s their job to do that as soon as they are on the scene.
  • Officers didn’t want an autopsy done- the medical examiner had to order one from the District Attorney 
  • It’s a very racially charged town -The age of consent in North Carolina is 16, but in a town where 86 black people were lynched between 1882 and 1968, and neighbors still have Confederate flags in their yard, the interracial relationship may have caused some tension. In fact, Lacy’s neighbors, a white couple living in a trailer home right behind the Lacy family home, were instructed by police to remove a Confederate flag and a sign that read “Niggers keep out” from their front yard.
  • His grave was desecrated - Just a few days after Lacy was buried, his family found that someone desecrated his burial site, dumping the flowers 40 feet away beside the road and carving a hole into the plot.
  • It was ruled that there was no foul play - EVEN THOUGH OF COURSE THERE FUCKING WAS
