Family and supporters of Yolna Lubrin gathered in Orlando to demand a reinvestigation into her death. Last month, Lubrin, 30, was found hanging from a tree in the backyard of a home, and her death was initially ruled as a suicide by the Orlando Police Department (OPD). Authorities stated that they found evidence of hanging and mentioned Lubrin’s history of mental illness and suicidal content on her phone.
However, the family raised concerns about the circumstances surrounding Lubrin’s death. They pointed out that her body was found partially nude and that she was unfamiliar with the neighborhood where she was discovered. The family has filed a public records request for more information from the OPD and is awaiting the results of an independent autopsy.
Pastor Carl Soto, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Restoration Inc., stated, “She didn’t put herself there. Someone had to have put her there.” He urged the police to investigate all individuals who lived or occupied the home where Lubrin’s body was found.
The Orlando Police Department’s initial ruling of suicide remains in place until further investigation or evidence is presented.
