Surveillance Video Of Laquan McDonald's Death Was Found Missing At Burger King
|Will More Come Out About This Case?|
Minutes after McDonald was shot 16 times by Officer Jason Van Dyke on a Southwest Side street, several police officers entered a Burger King located just yards from where the teen fell.
Demanding to view the restaurant's password-protected surveillance video, Jay Darshane, a district manager for the fast-food chain, told reports this week.
When the police left the restaurant almost two hours later, the video had an inexplicable 86-minute gap that included when McDonald was shot, according to Darshane.

The state’s D.A., Anita Alvarez, is ignoring the facts by claiming that there isn’t any evidence that the video was intentionally erased.
