A Black 15-year-old was found dead in a sugar cane field in rural Louisiana, and now his family is seeking answers. According to reports, a white 17-year-old friend and his mother picked up Quawan “Bobby” Charles on the evening of Oct. 30 without his parents’ permission.

When they were unable to reach or find their son, Bobby’s parents called both the Baldwin Police Department and West St. Mary Sheriff’s Office to report him as missing.

Tragically, the teenager was found deceased four days later.

In a statement, the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office said Bobby’s body was found in a rural area near Loreauville, Louisiana.

According to a report by KATC, his family says police have told them he drowned.

However, Bobby’s family does not believe this, as the teen had horrific injuries to his face and head when they saw him at the coroner’s office.

The family and others have shared a graphic photo of Bobby’s brutalized body on social media.

“His face is disfigured. So there’s some explaining that needs to be done there,” Celina Charles — the family’s spokesperson — said.

Bobby’s family is now seeking their own independent autopsy to get around the cops’ lack of transparency.
