WOONSOCKET â Lorenzo Ajavon was a typical 17-year-old who liked listening to music and shooting hoops with his friends at Globe Park.
He had no track record with the police and no known history of drug involvement, but within hours of leaving his home at 372 Robinson St. Sunday he ended up in the Blackstone River, dead.
How and why are questions that now vex the police.
âItâs a mystery,â said Detective Sgt. Matt Ryan, spokesman for the Woonsocket Police Department. âThis isnât like anything Iâve every encountered before.â
