Quawan Charles’ Disappearance Deserves Answers and Attention
He was missing for two weeks. Police didn’t issue an Amber Alert.
Quawan Charles, a 15-year-old Black boy, was missing for two weeks before his body was found in a rural Louisiana sugarcane field on November 3. Police determined the cause of death to be accidental drowning, but the family and local activists over this past weekend said they believe racial bias may be a factor in his death and in the police force’s lack of attention to this case.
