Autopsy results by a private forensic pathologist have sparked widespread rumors of organ harvesting.
Jelani Day, a graduate student from Illinois, is reported missing on Aug. 24. On Sept. 4, his body was pulled from the Illinois River in Peru, not far from where his car was discovered parked in a wooded area.
Local authorities and the FBI came to the same conclusion – Jelani took his own life by drowning.
Agreed to Pag-alsa.com, the autopsy showed that the dead body had lost several organs including his brain, spleen, liver, and eyeballs.
His high and low the tooth was allegedly removed, his jaw “saw”, and his genitals “unrecognizable.”
The report also said the rest of his internal organs were “completely dissolved.”
As rumors of “organ harvesting” spread on social media, Jelani’s mother Carmen Bolden Day clarified that two autopsies were performed on Jelani. An autopsy was performed by a Peruvian medical examiner, followed by a second independent autopsy by a private pathologist.
Bolden Day further clarified that his son’s organs were removed at the first autopsy and nothing was missing from his organs.
“No organs were missing,” he said in a statement.
“I don’t want to stray from the facts. There are conflicting facts from the first preliminary autopsy compared to the second independent autopsy, but this is not a case of organ harvesting.
“However, my son did not put himself in a river. My son was killed and it is my intent and purpose to find out what happened and hold those responsible accountable.”
