BLADENBORO, N.C. (New York Daily News)—The mysterious hanging of a black North Carolina teen took new twist Thursday when a 32-year-old white woman he was dating said she fears he was murdered over their interracial romance.

Michelle Brimhall broke her silence in the death of 17-year-old Lennon Lacy, revealing they had been hassled by white neighbors upset over their relationship.

“I believe Lennon was murdered,” Brimhall told DailyMail.com. “The police ruled his death a suicide but Lennon would never harm himself. He’s got too much love for life.”

The FBI launched an investigation earlier this month into the high school football player’s Aug. 29 death after his parents and the North Carolina branch of the NAACP rejected a medical examiner’s findings that he killed himself.
