Family and friends of the Baldwin, Louisiana teen found dead earlier this month were joined by civil rights groups in a protest march Saturday seeking justice for 15-year-old Quawan “Bobby” Charles.

Those in favor of justice for Quawan Charles are demanding accountability and transparency from Baldwin police and elected officials.

“I ain’t gonna let no racist turn me around,” one person said.

Protesters packed the streets of Baldwin Saturday in support of justice for the 15-year-old who was found dead in a corn field.

A Louisiana sheriff says his office is “working hard to ensure no stone is left unturned” in determining what led to the death of Charles whose disappearance sparked speculation about racial crime.

Iberia Parish Sheriff Tommy Romero says his office is doing everything it can to gather evidence into what happened.

The parish coroner’s office said Friday that drowning appears to be the most likely cause of death of Charles.

Members of the civil rights organization Stand Black, the NAACP, the village 337 and the New Black Panther Party joined Charles’ family in demanding accountability and transparency from authorities and city officials.
