@Regrann from @blackwomenmatters - #PHILADELPHIAMISSISSIPPI– The death of #RexdaleWHenry, a 53-year-old #Choctaw activist, who died while being held in a county jail is under investigation by the #MississippiBureuaofInvestigation.
#RexdaleHenry died on Tuesday, July 14, 2015, from unspecified causes was found in a cell at the #NeshobaCounty Jail in Philadelphia, Mississippi. At the time of his death, Henry was incarcerated for failure to pay a fine. He was found dead in his cell on the morning of July 14 about 10:00 a.m. He was last seen alive around 9:30 a.m. that morning.
The #Mississippi state crime lab performed an autospy and an independent one is being conducted to determine the cause of his death. The independent autospy is being paid for by an anonymous donor. -HENRY WAS A RESPECTED TRIBAL CITIZEN WHO WAS CONSIDERED A MEDICINE MAN AND COACHED STICKBALL. JUST A WEEK BEFORE HIS DEATH, HENRY HAD BEEN A CANDIDATE FOR THE TRIBAL COUNCIL FOR THE JUNE 9 ELECTION OF THE MISSISSIPPI BAND OF #CHOCTAWNATION, BASED IN #CHOCTAWMISSISSIPPI.
His family wants answers into why and how Henry died while being jailed. They maintain Henry was healthy at the time of his arrest.
According to family supporters, the results of the independent autsospy will be released once they are received.

Adjutant Albert L. Peel, 19th Mississippi Infantry. Killed at the Bloody Angle, Spotsylvania Court House, VA, 12 May 1864.
“Adjutant Peel had thrown aside his sword and with a very fine rifle,
captured from the enemy, he was shooting as rapidly as he could reload.
He fell, shot through the head at the foot of an oak tree which had been
cut down by deadly missiles. His body was found by his brother, Dr. R.
H. Peel, who was then surgeon of the regiment, and it was buried after
dark. The stump of this oak tree at the root of which Adjutant Peel fell
measured at the time Twenty-two inches in diameter, and is now among
the war relics in the museum at Washington City. We buried Adjutant
Peel’s body beside his colonel, the gallant T. J. Hardin, who was also
killed in the battle.” Excerpt from Confederate Veteran, Volume 10,
Page 367: “THE LAST ROLL.”
Poliwrath and Politoed are found in opposite habitats of each other. They are both found in similar areas to Poliwhirl, but in different regions they evolve to the other form. We have still yet to confirm why this is the case. Politoed often act as leaders to the Poliwag and Poliwhirl in the area, as it can gather them with the songs they can sing. Politoed sings in a loud baritone pitched voice, and the curl on its head is used to show that it is king. The longer and curlier this is, the more respected they are among politoed.
Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians activist, Rexdale Henry, was found dead in jail under nearly the same conditions as Sandra Bland. In fact, the circumstances surrounding both cases are eerily similar.
Henry, 53, was stopped and arrested on July 9th for failure to pay a fine that had resulted from previous minor traffic offense. Apparently, in the U.S. we are jailing individuals now for failure…
“New Orleans Day exploration” - February 2015 - New Orleans
During my free time, I tried to get over that month spent in Tennessee by 0F° (-17C°) by walking in the warm atmosphere of New Orleans, City crossed by the Mississippi river.
ALERT FUNNY FACT /!\ : The Mississippi split the town in two different way, at the begining NORTH/SOUTH and then EAST/WEST after a 90 degrees turn of the river, creating donwtown and the Westbank, the westbank is, actualy, the EST part of the city, and i have no clue why. If someone knows, please, please deliver me from that question.
