Dear District Attorney Lawrence,
I am writing to express my concern regarding the shooting death of 17-year-old Billey Joe Johnson of Lucedale, Mississippi. I have grave doubts that Johnson took his own life, as the George County Sheriff's Department has alleged. The facts of the case don't add up.
There are serious questions that raise doubt about the official story, including an independent investigation that concluded it is impossible for the shot that killed Johnson to have been self-inflicted. I expect that you will thoroughly investigate these claims and the many other questions about what may have occurred.
I am one of many Americans who believe it is crucial that you pursue justice for Johnson's family, and that you make sense of the myriad inconsistencies rather than accept the sheriff's explanation as the true story.
I will continue to closely watch developments in this case.
[ Your name ]
