“Two people connected to the Flint water crisis were found dead within days of each other this month — but authorities swear there’s no connection or conspiracy in the tragedies.
A friend found Matthew McFarland, a foreman at Flint’s Water Treatment Plant, dead in his Otter Lake home on April 16, according to MLive.
Just three days later, Sasha Avonna Bell — one of the first people to file a lawsuit over the city’s contaminated water supply — was shot and killed in a double murder.”
“A key figure in the Flint water crisis has been killed — a young mom who was one of the first to sue after her baby boy came down with lead poisoning.
Sasha Avona Bell was fatally shot last week — allegedly by a spurned lover — while her 16-month-old son Matthew was in the apartment, according to the Flint Police Department.
The murder suspect, identified as Malek Thornton, also gunned down another 19-year-old woman in the apartment named Sacorya Reed, police said. Matthew was not harmed.”
