A young gay man being held for over a month at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia has died after suffering from an unspecified “chronic illness.”
27-year-old Contravious “Trey” Burson was rushed from the jail to Grady Memorial Hospital after becoming ill on December 12, according to a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office. He died a few hours later.
Police have been staying mum about the whole thing, refusing to say what the “chronic illness” was or why they waited until he was near death before getting him proper medical care.
When pressed for more information, Tracy Flanagan, the sheriff’s office spokeswoman, specifically said, “No additional details can be released at this time.”
Dr. Karen Sullivan, Fulton’s deputy chief medical examiner, tells Project Q that an autopsy on Burson was performed but the results have not yet been released.
“The cause and manner of death are pending investigation,” she says.

Burson was arrested last month after allegedly threatening a security guard at a movie theater.
He was booked into Fulton County Jail on November 2 and charged with aggravated assault, making terroristic threats, and carrying a weapon without a valid license.
Since news of his death broke, Burson’s friends have taken to Facebook to share fond memories of him, remembering his unique sense of humor and dancing skills, as well as his “loving” and “caring” energy.
“He was the person that would light up the room,” Burson’s friend Tolulope Lulu tells Project Q. “He was the person who would give you a listening ear even though he was stressed or going through personal things.”
A funeral will be held this Saturday.

How is this death related to anything gay? It (this article nor his arrest) doesn’t have anything in it that seems gay related. Did I miss something? If you are scraping the bottom of the barrel for stories how about a story regarding Jaden Smith emaciated appearance that has everyone talking and asking what is the problem because something CLEARLY looks wrong with him and his “veg diet” excuse is not being believed.
The third word of this article is literally “gay”, the picture here from what I assume is from one of his social media accounts has a Happy Pride Month filter/sticker-thingie on it. If these two things alone doesn’t make this gay-related I don’t know what will.
@Sis, the article begins, “A young gay man being held for over a month at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia has died after suffering from an unspecified ‘chronic illness.'” What about the words young gay man do you not get as being “related to anything gay”???

Lord, once again my comment helps her get off by twisting her panties all up in her crack. Isn’t it fair she do something for me in return considering this is the fifth time within four days? Why can’t she be like Heywood, or Donston, or rustyiam and just ignore me. But oh no, not this queen. I mean really!
Hopefully the truth will come out. The WHOLE truth. ? ? ?
