Damon Weaver, the young, gifted and Black student reporter who interviewed President Barack Obama at the White House in 2009, died on May 1, at the age of 23, according to his family.

The cause of the young man’s death has not been released, but his sister, Candace Hardy, confirmed Thursday that he died of natural causes.

“He was loved by everyone,” Hardy told The Palm Beach Post. “No matter if it was a stranger, his mom or a family member, he was just a ball of light with so much energy. He was always positive, always had a smile on [his] face and he was always a joy to be around. He left an impact on a lot of people.”




Weaver was an 11-year-old student at Canal Point Elementary School in Canal Point, Fla., when he met and interviewed President Obama in the White House Diplomatic Room on Aug. 13, 2009.

Is that a new euphemism for US law enforcement?
If that's the case we'd probably have heard about it.

''The police murdered the wholesome black kid who once interviewed America's first black president!'' is a headline that writes itself.

I think that means he wasn't murdered. Or killed by any supernatural entities.
Yeah but just wait until Police Unions cite the increased number of ghost attacks and ghost murders as reason for departments to get Harrier jets and robot attack dogs with wire sickles for teeth that specifically go for the Achilles tendon.

Weaver was looking forward to a career in journalism. According to CNN, he told Time Magazine in a 2009 interview that he “would like to be Wolf Blitzer.”

That's a first lol.

Died of natural causes?
They didn't want to tell anyone the nature of his death, probably because it's some kind of illness that might draw stigma from various corners, or just something they don't want to divulge, because it's none of our fucking business.

If I had to guess, he probably had some congenital problem that the family just never talked about, and were treating as best they could, and hoped he could live as long as possible. But that's speculation.
