BLADEN COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- A new documentary examining a Bladen County teenager's mysterious death won an award at the Sundance Film Festival.

Five years ago 17-year-old Lennon Lacy was found dead hanging from a swing set.

The racially-charged case made international headlines when family members insisted his death was a lynching and not a suicide.

The documentary called "Always in Season," won the Special Jury Award for Moral Urgency at Sundance.
