CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Police say they've questioned two persons of interest in the disappearance and death of Angel Bradley-Crockett.

Meantime, hundreds showed up to a community rally Wednesday evening on Interstate 90 and W. 44th Street, to celebrate her life and demand answers from police.

Organized by Peace in the Hood, Inc., community leaders and Bradley-Crockett's family members want to know how a 28-year old Black woman lie naked on the side of a busy interstate for 2 hours and get mistaken for a deer?

From the first call at 4:30 a.m., when the first officer arrived, until 6:30 a.m. when another officer showed up and got out of the car, 28 year old Angel Bradley-Crockett lay naked and dead on a well traveled interstate during the beginnings of rush hour.

A passer by called 911 to report the body at 4:30 a.m. Police were dispatched and reported that the body was probably that of a deer. ODOT was notified. More callers, including the ODOT driver, called 911, including two people who got out of their cars and positively identified the body as that of a young woman.

Police came back at 6:30 a.m. and began to treat Ms. Bradley-Crockett as a human being, providing her the dignity she had been denied for two hours.
