NEW YORK (Huffington Post)—Constance Malcolm still lives in the Bronx apartment where her 18-year-old son, Ramarley Graham, was shot and killed by a New York City Police Department officer three years ago on Monday.

Tucked away in a corner of one room, there’s a pile of Ramarley’s clothes, just as he left them, with T-shirts folded neatly. A stack of his picture frames shows the family in happier times, when Ramarley was alive.

“Everything is still the same way, three years later,” Constance said. “I get the question all the time: ‘What are you going to do with it?’ And I don’t know, because Ramarley was very funny with his stuff, so I have to be very careful about who I give it away to, if I’m giving it away.”
