On August 24th Jelani Day went missing and his car was found with no license plates or keys several days after he was reported missing. Ten days later, Jelani’s body was found face down in the Illinois River 60 miles from his campus in a town where less than 1 percent of the population is Black. Jelani was an avid swimmer who’d competed on his school’s swim team who had no known connections in this town.

Jelani's car, wallet, clothing,  phone AND body were found in five DIFFERENT locations. The police departments in Bloomington, Peru, and La Salle aren't producing any answers to what happened to Jelani Day. The police states that Jelani's death is "suspicious" and "unusual." but have not thoroughly investigated the entire case.

Jelani's murderers are still free, walking the streets among us and we’re losing confidence in local authorities as they never made Jelani ‘s disappearance a priority. Jelani loved the Lord. He ran track at Alabama A&M, was enrolled at Illinois State to get his master’s degree in speech pathology and is a member of the fraternity Omega Psi Phi.

Sign this petition to bring justice for Jelani. Demand that the FBI intervenes to find what happened to Jelani Day.
