State Police Declare Death of 18-Year-Old Boy As Suicide

A state police investigation into the death of a Georgetown college student reaches the same finding, suicide.

18-year-old Remy Okonkwo was found hanged in a fraternity dormitory in March.

Police in Georgetown investigated and declared the case a suicide.

Okonkwo's family and the Justice Resource Center in Louisville asked the mayor for further investigation in September.

The Reverend Louis Coleman of the center says the state police didn't do what the family asked, but simply reviewed the investigation already done.

Coleman calls that unacceptable and says Civil Rights advocates will continue to press for answers.

The student's body was found in the kitchen of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.
