She noted that Lennon was 5-foot-9 and that the cross beam the noose was attached to was 90 inches off the ground, too high for the teen to reach on his own."There was no item present at the scene that Lennon could have stood on, applied the noose and then kicked away," Roberts wrote in her report, also noting that Lennon had on sneakers that were too small for his size 12 feet.It was unclear if investigators interviewed Brimhall before she went into hiding.The FBI announced on Friday that it was opening an investigation into Lacy’s death after questions were raised by his mother and the North Carolina branch of the NAACP, which hired an independent pathologist to look into the death. Christena Roberts suggested it was implausible for Lennon to have been able to act alone in causing his death, given how his body was found hanging from a wooden swing set.
“I gave her plenty of chances,” Brimhall’s father told The News, when reached by phone at his Illinois home.
“I can’t do it anymore.” Pierre Lacy said his brother was threatened publicly and called the N-word for dating Brimhall.
