A heartbreaking report from the Chicago Sun Times has detailed the devastating autopsy results of Illinois grad student, Jelani Day.
According to the Chicago Sun Times, an autopsy performed by a private forensic pathologist found that Dayâ€™s corpse was missing its organs, including his brain, liver and spleen. His eyeballs had reportedly been removed, his front top and bottom teeth were missing, his jawbone had been â€œsawed outâ€� and his genitalia was unidentifiable.
A pathology report added that Dayâ€™s organs were â€œcompletely liquefied.â€� According to MEAWW, his familyâ€™s attorney, Hallie M Bezner, is currently seeking out scientific explanations for how his body could have decomposed so severely.
A body discovered in the Illinois River near Peru, Illinois on Sept. 4 â€” over a week after his Aug. 24 disappearance â€” was confirmed to be Dayâ€™s on Sept. 23. Police have since called the circumstances surrounding the 25-year-old Illinois State University studentâ€™s death and disappearance â€œvery suspicious.â€�
Before his body was found, Dayâ€™s mother expressed her frustration about the lack of coverage regarding his disappearance.
â€œI was very frustrated with the fact that Jelani hadnâ€™t been getting the coverage,â€� Carmen Day told the Sun-Times. â€œJelani has been missing for 24 days. It appears that help has ceased. Iâ€™m imploring, pleading and asking that the police still pay attention and look for my son.â€�
At the time, media coverage was heavily centered around missing woman Gabby Petito, about whom Dayâ€™s mother said, â€œHer face is plastered everywhere and the FBI is involved. And I do not understand why Jelani doesnâ€™t get that same coverage; Jelani doesnâ€™t get that same attention.â€�
On Monday (Oct. 11), #JusticeForJelaniDay began trending on Twitter as users pointed out the disturbing circumstances surrounding his death.
â€œOne day yâ€™all will soon realize organ trafficking is just as real & scary as sex trafficking. If you look into how many BLACK bodies are found w/ no organs inside of them youâ€™ll be very surprised & disgusted,â€� one person wrote. â€œ… An article about Jelani Day today said multiple of his organs was missing from his body. I definitely feel like they organ trafficked this young man.â€�
â€œJelani didnâ€™t kill himself his body was found with no organs no eyes, his genitalia was damaged etc this wasnâ€™t a suicide he was murdered & no one is coming forward,â€� another person tweeted.
On Saturday (Oct. 9), hundreds of Dayâ€™s friends, family and neighbors gathered at Danville High School to celebrate his life and legacy. See posts about the autopsyâ€™s findings on Twitter below.

What they did to Jelani has really disturbed my spirit. How is someone even able to do such things??? Demonic on the highest level.

they need to really look into the other students at his school or hospital co-workers, if he was working. this sounds like a smart serial killer or a medical person out to get him, specifically. horrific. bet this is why they didn’t wanna release. if it’s a sk, might excite them. https://t.co/vPh4wyrBs6

After a month of â€œsearchingâ€� this is how Jelani was found. He had no eyeballs, no face, no scalp, jaw bone sawed out, no ORGANS, not even a liver, and the most craziest of all no brain. Sound familiar like history keeps repeating itselfâ€¦. His family deserve to know #JELANIDAY
