Lennon Lacy’s 32-Year-Old Girlfriend Breaks Her Silence: “Lennon Would Never Harm Himself”
As investigators continue to probe the mysterious death of 17-year-old Lennon Lacy, the woman who many have speculated that Lacy was killed over is breaking her silence.
The North Carolina teen was found hanging from a wooden swing set. Although several pieces of evidence found at the scene and on the teen’s person seemed to imply that his death was the result of a homicide, local investigators hastily ruled his death a suicide. Thankfully, the FBI has decided to look into things.
32-year-old Michelle Brimhall, who had a romantic relationship with the late teen, recently spoke with Daily Mail, and she, too, believes that he was murdered.
“I believe Lennon was murdered,” Brimhall said. “The police ruled his death a suicide but Lennon would never harm himself. He’s got too much love for life.”
She revealed that she and the teen had plans for the future and that they had gotten together after her move to Bladenboro, North Carolina following the disintegration of her marriage.
“In February I left my husband Michael and I left Illinois and I went to North Carolina,” she explained. “I found everything about Lennon attractive. He was tall and strong and he acted much older than what he was. He had a very good soul.”
“We talked about everything. He talked about school, his mom and dad, my kids, everything going on in life. We was together every day until I started college and he went back to school,” she continued. “We had made plans to move to Charlotte after he finished high school where he could go to school until he could get into the NFL. My kids loved Lennon.”
Sadly, Brimhall says that she and Lacy were the target of several racist remarks over the course of their relationship. Neighbors living in the single mother’s trailer park threw up the confederate flag and put out a sign the read: “N-ggers keep out.”
“We tried to keep it [our relationship] a secret. We would walk to the store together but we never held hands or kissed or any of that stuff out in public,” she said.
Things cooled off with their relationship after Lacy’s parents protested against it on multiple occasions, but she says that she did see him on the night of his death.
“It was a Thursday night. We did not see each other or talk to each other that day but I saw Lennon sitting on his front porch.”
“A friend came over and when he left at about 12:30am Lennon was not sitting on his porch no more.”
Lacy was later found hanging from the swing set.
“I knew that they found him hanging. It didn’t make any sense. If they beat him up, why did they have to hang him and kill him?”
