On the night of June 25th Elijah (Nicky) Weatherspoon went onto a boat with 7 other “Friends” everyone else made it home alive that night except for Nicky. Hours later his disappearance was reported and divers searched, but was unable to find his body until June 28th. 

There have being several conflicting stories given to the police on what happened. Some say he decided to flip off the boat, along with another, and a “Good Samaritan” could only save one, but not Nicky, another story was the boat was docked and Nicky jumped off but couldn’t come back up due to his inability to swim, (He was an experienced swimmer) and another story was he panicked while another tried to help him and sank. 

We want answers. The news refuses to seek the truth and have stopped reporting, the Mount Pleasant Police Department refuse to investigate despite the numerous evidence that supports it wasn’t just a boating accident. This is clearly more than a accident. Nicky deserves justice, and so does his family. The family believes that because Nicky was black and everyone else was white they are not trying to investigate. An officer questioned as to “Why was Nicky on this side of town (Mount Pleasant) “Why wasn’t he on his side of town”. Regardless of what side of town he was on, a crime was committed and we seek equal justice.
