Morehouse School Of Medicine Grad Found Dead In Georgia, Family Demanding Answers

The family of Dr. Diamond Clarke, a recent graduate of Morehouse School of Medicine, is seeking justice after she was found dead in Georgia. Her family suspects foul play in her untimely death, just weeks following her graduation.

Darren Anglin, a long-time friend of Diamond, shares her family’s concerns. “We received a crash alert from her phone between 5 and 5:30 p.m. That prompted our concerns,” he told Atlanta News First.

Dekalb County police reported that Diamond was last seen at her Decatur home on May 28. Authorities found her body the next day in a wooded area in Lithonia, with a gunshot wound to the head. Her car was found abandoned nearby, and her phone was later found in her driveway.

Dr. Diamond Clarke, a 28-year-old recent graduate from Morehouse School of Medicine was found dead in Georgia on May 29th.

Anglin said the circumstances surrounding her death don’t make sense.

“If I’m not mistaken, there were five rounds found on the scene and Diamond suffered a gunshot wound to the head. We want to better understand who the owner of the gun may be. How the gun was discharged,” he said.

Police records indicate Diamond’s boyfriend was the last person to see her. He told police they argued at her home, and she left and never returned.

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

Morehouse School of Medicine Dean Adrian Tyndall expressed the school’s grief and honored Dr. Clarke’s dedication to healthcare and community service.

“Dr. Clarke’s commitment to underserved communities, her volunteer work at our H.E.A.L. Clinic, and her efforts in establishing the Lifestyle Medicine Interest Group exemplified her dedication to holistic healthcare and helping others,” he said. “She was honored with the 2023 Excellence in Public Health Award and the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians T.A. Sappington MD Award. Dr. Clarke’s compassion and vision for Family Medicine will continue to inspire us. Our thoughts are with her family and friends during this difficult time.”

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

Meanwhile, Dekalb County Police currently consider Clarke’s death a suicide. Her family insists the investigation is ongoing to rule out any foul play. They are working with police 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 emphasized.

The medical examiner’s office will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
