A Black family in Oakland is convinced that their son committed suicide Sunday after learning that a local sheriff's department had cracked a joke about him on Facebook.

The Oakland County sheriff's office is being accused of driving 19-year-old Tyrone Jackson to kill himself after posting a message on its Facebook feed that read: "We have decided that Tyrone Jackson is no longer the Wanted Person of the Week… he is the Wanted Person of the Month of June. Congratulations!

Tyrone Jackson had a number of arrest warrants in the county, including attempted murder, possession of a controlled substance, and a third that police wouldn't divulge to the press.

On Tuesday, Jackson's sister posted on Facebook that the sheriff's office had done more than just post about Tyrone Jackson dubious "Wanted" distinction.

Above post is a complete fabrication.

Suicide is too complicated an action for black people.

Suicide, I think not. It was The Lord Satan calling him back to the depths of Hell for his murderous ways.
