Based on new evidence and deep reporting, the riveting truth about
a case that has become a touchstone in the struggle for racial
justice and Black lives.
Killed Freddie Gray exposes a conspiracy among Baltimore leaders
to cover up what actually happened to Freddie Gray, who was fatally
injured in the back of a police van in April 2015. After Gray’s
death, Baltimore became ground zero for Black Lives Matter and racial
justice protests that exploded across the country. State’s Attorney
Marilyn Mosby became a hero when she charged six officers in Gray’s
death, and the trials of the officers generated national headlines
for two years.
the cause of Gray’s death has remained a mystery. A viral video
showed an officer leaning on Gray’s back while he cried out in
pain. But the autopsy concluded he was fatally injured later that
morning while the van was in motion—during a multi-stop “rough
ride”—from sudden impact to his head. None of the officers were
convicted of any crimes based on this theory.
Killed Freddie Gray solves the mystery of Gray’s death by
uncovering new evidence of how he was killed by police and how his
cause of death was covered up. In coordination with a documentary
film being produced by MRC Entertainment, this book revisits a
pivotal moment in US criminal justice history, providing new insight
into what happened, the historical structures of power that allowed
it to happen, and the personalities and dynamics involved—a story
never told by the mainstream media.
