On Friday, word began spreading via social media that known white nationalist Andrew Dodson had passed away from suicide. Dodson received national attention after he was identified in images and video at the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally that ended with the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

On social media, Dodson is being recognized as a fallen brother and a hero by the alt-right and praised for his attendance at the Charlottesville rally. Supporters of the White Nationalist movement claim Dodson was a victim of cyberbullying after being identified in images and video from the rally.

Dodson's death may just now be gaining some attention, but in reality, it has been over two months since he took his own life. An obituary on legacy.com reports the death happened on March 9, 2018. Dodson's Facebook profile is now a memorial page as well.

On August 16, 2017, the Arkansas Times published an article written by Jacob Rosenberg titled, "Arkansas-linked Charlottesville marcher identified, apologizes to those misidentified." Before Dodson was identified as the man wearing the red shirt that read "Arkansas Engineering," several others were misidentified, including an Engineering professor at the University of Arkansas who became the target of Internet backlash.
