Woman Leading Flint Water Crisis Lawsuit Found Murdered
It’s a tragic story of government corruption, cover-up, conspiracy, the suffering of innocents and now death. The Flint, Michigan contaminated water story exploded with the murder of Sasha Bell (19), one of the first people to take action in the Flint contaminated water crisis.
On April 19, the bodies of Sasha Bell and another woman, Sacorya Reed (19), were discovered in Bell’s home. Both women had been shot. In an astonishing discovery, emergency responders found a one-year-old child in the home whose life had been spared.
The child’s gender wasn’t disclosed and its identity was withheld. There was speculation that the child was Bell’s son. It was her son’s poisoning from the heavy metals in the water that motivated Bell to seek legal action against the government.
It didn’t take police very long to close in on a murder suspect. 18-year-old Malek Emmanuel Thornton was taken into custody the day after the two women’s bodies were discovered. He was later charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of open murder and felony firearm.
Immediately, the Internet was slammed with all kinds of conspiracy theories surrounding Bell’s death. She was often in the center of the Flint water controversy and among those demanding justice for their 2-year long water crisis.
Many speculated that Bell was actually assassinated in an effort to silence her and diffuse the situation. However, at the time of her death the government cover-up of the Flint water contamination was unraveling and arrests imminent
