The family of Dr. Diamond Clarke, a recent graduate of Morehouse School of Medicine, is demanding answers after she was tragically found dead in Georgia.

Suspicion surrounds her untimely passing, just weeks following her graduation, reports Atlanta News First.

According to Darren Anglin, a close friend of Diamond, their concerns were raised when they received a crash alert from her phone between 5 and 5:30 p.m. This prompted immediate worry among her loved ones.

Reportedly, Diamond was last seen at her Decatur home on May 28. Authorities discovered her body the following day in a wooded area in Lithonia, where she had sustained a gunshot wound to the head.

Her abandoned car was found nearby, and her phone was later located in her driveway.

Anglin expressed confusion over the circumstances of her death, highlighting the discovery of five rounds at the scene and questioning the ownership and discharge of the gun involved.

Police records indicate that Diamond’s boyfriend was the last person to see her. He informed the authorities that they had an argument at her home, after which she left and did not return.

Dr. Clarke, a promising medical professional, had recently earned her medical degree and was preparing to commence her residency in South Georgia.

Morehouse School of Medicine Dean Adrian Tyndall lamented Dr. Clarke’s untimely passing and celebrated her dedication to healthcare and community service.

He praised her commitment to underserved communities and highlighted her accolades, including the 2023 Excellence in Public Health Award and the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians T.A. Sappington MD Award.

A tribute to Diamond Clarke was held at a recent Megan Thee Stallion concert at State Farm Arena.

While Dekalb County Police have classified Clarke’s death as a suicide, her family insists that the investigation remains ongoing to eliminate any suspicions of foul play.

They are cooperating with law enforcement to ensure a thorough investigation.

“Now that she’s gone, the family is looking for justice for this woman who dedicated her entire life to seeking justice and life for others,” Anglin said.

The medical examiner’s office is set to conduct an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.
