Makeda Scott

21 year- old Makeda Scott was found dead in lake MacBride Monday, June 9. Johnson County chose to not conduct a thorough investigation into her death; determining before the autopsy and toxicology report was done that Makeda’s death was an accident. The sheriff’s department robbed Makeda’s family of possible justice over their daughter’s death. Makeda, a Black woman, was not given her right to a full investigation of her death.
