BLADENBORO, N.C. (AP) - The state chapter of the NAACP hopes offering a reward for tips will help yield information on the hanging death of a Bladen County teenager.

Local media outlets report that the NAACP discussed the case during a meeting Wednesday.

A 911 caller reported spotting Lennon Lacy’s body on Aug. 29, 2014, in the small town of Bladenboro, about 100 miles south of Raleigh. Lacy’s feet were suspended 2 inches off the ground.

The state medical examiner ruled the boy killed himself. The FBI launched an investigation after the 17-year-old’s relatives and the NAACP raised doubts about the official findings, which the county coroner also questioned.
