Update: In an unexpected twist to Jelani Day's brutal murder case, the mother of the slain student has now refuted the claim of vital organs missing from his body. Carmen Bolden-Day stated: “No organs were missing. I do not want to stray off from the facts. There were contradicting facts from the first preliminary autopsy compared to the second independent autopsy, but this is not a case of organ harvesting."

The mystery around Illinois graduate student and aspiring doctor Jelani Day's death seem to get deeper by the day. Day, a 25-year-old grad student at ISU, went missing on August 25. His decaying body was found in the Illinois River on September 4 and was identified 19 days later. Day's corpse reportedly had no eyeballs, only sockets.

The body was missing its front top and bottom teeth. An autopsy performed by a private forensic pathologist suggested that his jawbone had been "sawed out". Days' family and their attorney said the pathologist could find no brain, no liver, no spleen, no organs. Police have not yet released a cause of death.

Netizens have been crying foul play in the Jelani Day case ever since it came into the limelight. While demanding justice for Jelani Day, social media sleuths have been unravelling clues as to what really went down with Day. In a new development, netizens targetted Jelani Day's professor, Cara Boester for somehow being involved in his death. Reportedly, Cara had been texting with Jelani Day the night before he disappeared.

Who is Cara Boester?

Cara, the director of Clinical Education at ISU exchanged texts with Day on Monday, August 23 night about his coursework, but that's the last she heard from him. "He was actually supposed to come see me the next morning," Boester noted. "When he didn't show up, I texted to see what was going on and he didn't answer me. I knew he had class at 1 pm, so I waited for him after class and he didn't show up," she said, adding, "That is not at all something our grad students would do and certainly not something Jelani would do." She notified campus police about Day's disappearance on Tuesday, August 24, who responded to Day’s parents' house on Wednesday, August 25. The family then filed a missing person report with the Bloomington Police Department on August 25 and police launched an investigation.

'The professor needs to be investigated'

People demanded that the professor in question be investigated in connection with Day's death and posted tweets like, "The Jelani Day story is sickening … I’m not confused by what happened. He was manipulating… drugged … raped probably… killed .. and then his organs were stolen . Arrest the professor and family . Idc idc she guilty ! But I know that won’t happen." One person tweeted, "#JelaniDay investigate his professor and her family" Another tweet read, "The #JelaniDay story is a wake up call that organ harvesting is still in FULL EFFECT! Be careful … and arrest that professor he was going to meet"

One person wrote, "I really believe it was a setup within the school dealing with #JelaniDay … not many black men attend that school. Jelani was in EXCELLENT shape.. ran track, stayed fit.. I honestly believe his professor had something to do with it." One tweet read, "#JelaniDay someone had something personal against him. He had a beef with professor because he knew he deserved to be at the top of his class. He wanted to be a pathologist. What did they take from him?? His brain and his jaw. It was personal. #WhatHappenedToJelaniDay" Another person wrote, "Now that I have been given an update of #JelaniDay body I indeed think he was murdered and the professor need to be investigated I also wonder if he was an organ donor"
