At 9 a.m. Tuesday, a resident of an apartment complex spotted the body of 20-year-old DeAndre Joshua inside a parked car, a white Pontiac Grand Prix, near Canfield Green Apartments, the same complex where Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson shot Brown on Aug. 9. Blood-soaked shattered glass lay in a pile on the ground beside the car, reports USA Today.
Family members said Joshua's death is tied to the protests that consumed Ferguson after St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch revealed the grand jury's decision not to indict Wilson. But family members said they did not know specifically how he died.
As police towed Joshua's car, his grandmother Renita Towns said she had little hope that police would investigate and learn the cause of her grandson's death.
"Police don't care — he's black," Towns said.
