Prosecutors made a strong case during a rare inquest Monday that Feraris Golden hung himself from a tree outside his grandmother’s house last May.

The county’s first inquest in 18 years was called to determine how the 32-year-old Belle Glade man died. Officials ruled it a suicide while town rumors called it a lynching, according to the Palm Beach Post. The death has drawn national attention.

State NAACP officials denounced Monday’s proceedings as merely a “quest” to prove suicide — not a true inquest to explore all the circumstances surrounding a suspicious death. Testimony was to continue Tuesday.
