Man, 20, dies amid Ferguson protests

Amid the rubble and ashes of a city convulsed in anger over the death of Michael Brown, a different family stood in shock and grief over the death of another young Black man: DeAndre Joshua, 20. At 9 a.m. Tuesday, a resident of an apartment complex spotted Joshua's body inside a parked car, a white Pontiac Grand Prix, near Canfield Green Apartments, the same complex where Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson shot Brown on Aug. 9. Blood-soaked shattered glass lay in a pile on the ground beside the car.

Family members said Joshua's death is tied to the protests that consumed Ferguson after St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch revealed the grand jury's decision not to indict Wilson. But family members said they did not know specifically how he died.
