In this excerpt from the film Always in Season, Pierre Lacy, brother of Lennon Lacy, recalls the awful day he learned of his brother's death. Pierre is convinced Lennon did not commit suicide, despite the police report declaring it just that. Pierre feels the police tried to "force-feed a lie to my family."
