Danye Jones was laid to rest today after his untimely death on Oct. 17, 2018. He was 24 years old when his life was stolen from him by hatred in St. Louis, MO.

Danye was an upbeat, good-spirited, and caring young man who loved his family and his community. He was looking forward to starting his own business before he lost his life. He was loved by many and his death has devastated his entire community beyond words. We all want justice for him and his loved ones.

I'm a 16 year old from New York. My tweet about Danye Jones had went viral on Oct. 31st, 2018. Upon seeing my tweet, Danye's family had reached out to me and we have been in communication ever since. I had started this GoFundMe all the way from New York because they deserve support, truth, and justice. We should ALL be standing with them during this difficult time.

The funds collected will be going directly to his family to pay for incurred funeral expenses,  the expense of a private autopsy, and help pay for the expense of comprehensive private investigation. This fundraiser has already been set up so that Danye's immediate family has the sole access to withdraw any funds.  Any contribution is greatly appreciated.

To add insultto injury I'll have to prepare to move out of this house. It's too much of a strain to remain here
