(New York Daily News) State investigators have refused to release dash cam videos from the shooting death of an unarmed, white teenager in South Carolina as his family claims police desecrated the young man's body.
The State Law Enforcement Division denied a public records request by the The Post and Courier to disclose videos from Seneca Police Department patrol cars.
Zachary Hammond, 19, was shot twice inside his car at a Hardee's parking lot, where he was on a first date with a 23-year-old woman. HIs family's lawyers, in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey, also claim Seneca police officers desecrated Hammond's body by lifting his dead hand and slapping it with a high-five gesture, WCSC-TV reported Friday.
