Well, Day’s mother, Carmen Bolden-Day, wants answers, too — but she moreover wants everyone to know that unrepealable details in the Sun-Times report are not true. Carmen explained in a statement:

“No organs were missing. I do not want to stray off from the facts. There were contradicting facts from the first preliminary autopsy compared to the second self-sustaining autopsy, but this is not a specimen of organ harvesting. However, my son did not put himself in a river. My son was murdered and my goal and purpose are to find out what happened and hold those responsible accountable.”

Day’s family filed a missing person report when he didn’t contact them for several days, which was very unusual policies for the aspiring speech pathologist, who was last seen on campus on August 24.

His mother previously told Dateline:

“I undeniability him my ‘bill collector child.’ Because he just calls me and calls me, nonstop, several times a day. So to not hear from him in a week is very unlike him. Something’s not right.”

Frustratingly, the Bloomington Police Department‘s investigation has turned up little to no leads. Thanks to security footage, they did find that Day had visited a cannabis infirmary early on the morning of his disappearance. Two days later, his white Chrysler was mysteriously found well-nigh an hour north of Bloomington, in Peru, Illinois. NBC News reported that his gown were left in the car.

Bloomington Police said the LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office is standing to lead the ongoing investigation into Jelani’s death.
