Gallery: Family and friends of Malik Malik stage rally, vigil and march; ask for release of body cam videos

BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA – JUNE 26: A group of family members and friends of Malik Malik stage a protest rally and vigil Saturday, June 26, 2021 at Peoples Park. The group then marched to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and back to demand body cam footage of Sheriff’s Deputies at the scene of Malik’s fatal crash in April be released. Malik was being pursued by deputies when his vehicle struck a tree at a high rate of speed and almost immediately caught fire. The sheriff’s office declined to release the body cam footage after a public records request, but did release a redacted crash report. Family members and friends of Malik are hoping the dash cam video will answer questions they have about Malik’s death. The Monroe County Coroner Joani Stalcup said Malik died from “hypoxia due to a flash fire.” “Hypoxia from a flash fire is when there is an explosion of intense heat/fire that literally sucks the oxygen out of the body,” said Stalcup.
