Many wondered if some had been angered by Shawntray’s calls for justice and decided to retaliate. Moreover, just two weeks prior to Shawntray’s death, he posted a cryptic social media message about the possibility of him passing away.

“For the record! When I pass just give me a regular funeral!” begins the post. “But that repast better have a DJ, decorator, bartender, caterer, and a cake. I want you’ll turnt! Because you can believe where I’m at I’m going to be lit.”

Coincidence or something more sinister?

In this episode, you’ll see the Savannah community rally to find answers. Was it revenge? An angry ex-girlfriend? Or was it simply a robbery gone wrong?
