Pharrell Williams is demanding justice for his 25-year-old old late cousin Donovon Lynch

Famed singer Pharrell Williams is demanding that a federal investigation be rolled out after a police officer shot and killed his cousin last month.

The Grammy winner is demanding justice for his 25-year-old old late cousin Donovon Lynch, who was killed in Virginia Beach, Virginia on March 26 by a police officer who claimed he possessed a handgun.

Turning to his Instagram, Williams marked his 48th birthday by remembering his cousin. "Thank you God for my 48th lap around the Sun.”

"This one is symbolic and a first because I had to speak at my cousin’s funeral, and was choked up with emotions. Too many unanswered City and State questions. Respectfully, I am calling for a Federal investigation,” he said.

The officer accused of Lynch’s death is currently placed on administrative leave as the probe takes place.
