I'm not going to comment yet beyond saying that the article is very sad to me.

It seems pretty routine to me.

Some of his own family members say he was depressed, and he had alcohol/drugs in his system. While that doesn't automatically equal suicide, that explanation makes far more sense than some sort of cover-up.

This seems more like local rabble-rousers exploiting a tragic death to fill their own coffers and increase their own influence. You can't sell newspapers without outrage.

That being said there could be some actual evidence that something improper went on... but it's certainly not in this article.

It felt to me like the article was trying to make readers think "Murder!" but from the information given it in, I can't agree.  It's murder because someone in an 'underground newspaper' said so?  There wasn't any evidence presented in the article that would have made me think it was murder.

Anyway it works out, it's all very sad.  Sad that there's that silly race devide, sad that - if it is murder - someone killed another person for race, sad if it was suicide that someone exploited it for racial tension like that.  All very very sad.

Strange, I can bring up the page, but not the article itself. :(
The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.

The article is still there.

And the article's point is not the veracity of the claims on either side, but the prevalence of suspicion on the part of African Americans who have a historical memory of callous treatment and racial discrimination, fueled by depressed economic conditions.

It is sad.
