The family of a black man whose remains were found a month after his disappearance in Mississippi believe he was lynched and dismembered and have called on the US Department of Justice to investigate the death and a text he sent his mother, in which he said that white men in trucks tried to kill him.

Rasheem Carter’s head was severed from his body, his spinal cord was severed from his head and his body parts were scattered after the 25-year-old went missing in October, family lawyer Ben Crump said at a news conference.

The Smith County Sheriff’s Department said his body was found Nov. 2 in a wooded area near Taylorsville, about 63 miles southeast of Jackson, Mississippi. Carter was reported missing on October 2 in Laurel, about 22 miles southeast of where his remains were found. Initially, officials said they had no reason to believe foul play was involved, but also said the case was being investigated further with the help of state investigators and the FBI.
