The people of Philadelphia demand answers around this eery death of Allen Mikell.
Allen Mikell allegedly was visiting family from out of town. Somewhere in between visiting family, the incident happened, and Mikell was found dead hanging in a park. The family refuses to believe the police reports on it being suicide.

Charlotte Brown gives more detail around the night of the hanging. Mikell started his day off getting his laptop fixed before a zoom conference he had.
After the meeting, he met up with a friend in the afternoon where he ended his night off being dropped off near Penns Landing. That was the last time Allen Mikell reportedly was in contact with his family.
The next morning his wife got a call around 7:00am that her husband (Allen) was found dead hanging in Capitolo Park. Brown says that this apparently this is the second hanging on that occurred at this South Philly playground recently.
