Marco McMillian disappeared after a car accident a few days ago, and his body was just found near a Mississippi river levee. There are few details but as an openly gay candidate in the very conservative town of Clarksdale, the police haven’t ruled out foul play. We really hope it was not a hate inspired death. Maybe that’s naive of us to wish for. Either way, the full story is here, our hearts go out to his family and campaign team.
