Texas woman, 20, found hanging in white roommate’s garage
Dallas police believe Gloria Bambo committed suicide
McKinney resident Gloria Bambo was found hanging in her white roommate’s garage and now questions are being raised surrounding the circumstances of her death.
The McKinney Police Department declared the death of Bambo, 20, a suicide after she was found dead in the garage on July 12. They responded to social media speculation with a post refuting claims of foul play and confirmed that her roommate has fully cooperated with the investigation.
They say that the investigation is still underway but have so far not found any evidence that Bambo was the victim of a crime.
However, there are many who do not believe the official version of events.
“Gloria resided with her roommate, a white male who found her in the garage Sunday July 12, 2020. Gloria went missing Thursday and supposedly died in that garage the same day July 9,” Jamilla Arnold wrote on Facebook.
“Gloria’s body was in that garage 3 days, where people resided, and repairs were made. No one has heard anything about this Why? We need to know what happened to Gloria? Report# 20-005342 Collin County NAACP The Dallas Morning News Fox News WFAA.
The message has since gone viral with others weighing in.
Civil rights attorney S. Lee Merritt addressed his concerns to McKinney mayor George Fuller in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
“Mayor Fuller, We are going to need some answers to this in McKinney, TX. CC: @lashadion,” he wrote.
Kedrian Fisher created a petition demanding “justice” for his former high school classmate and claims she was murdered. Furthermore, he alleged that the police were not doing their due diligence.
“Police refused share any other information to the family. That`s right our law and order only gave her a paragraph of information. Her enemies are so convinced on erasing her life & her story that they hijacked Gloria`s social media,” the petition read.
“Her adversary literally alt delete her images, words and lifestyle. Taking her freedom of speech. Gloria`s body was so decomposed Gloria`s family even cant view her. It seems like our police are more invest. in giving people tickets and find weed than solving this obvious homicide case.”
Fisher deemed her death as a “lynching” in broad daylight.
But a post allegedly written by Bambo’s roommate claimed that she suffered from bipolar an anxiety disorder and had endured unspecified trauma.
