Man In Iconic Protest Photo Found Dead At 27


Edward Crawford Jr., the man in the photo where he is throwing a tear gas canister back at police after the Michael Brown death, has been found dead.
The photo became a famous symbolism for the tension between police and protestors, particularly the black community.

TMZ reports that it may have been suicide or accidental as he was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His father does not believe it was suicide.

He leaves four children.
