You’ll be loved and remembered Darren Seals

On Tuesday morning, September 6, 2016, 29 year-old  Ferguson, Missouri activist and leader of the Michael Brown protests, Darren Seals’ body was found shot inside of a burning vehicle. Authorities are ruling Seal’s death as a homicide and his murder is being investigated. Activist companions, friends, and family of Seals are deeply heartbroken and are wary of what may come next.
