Authorities and relatives have argued that Booker was hit with unconsciousness and called derogatory names after a minor traffic accident on April 12, which was captured on video and published on Facebook.

He added that the authorities are still trying to identify others who participated in the booker’s battle last month and encouraged people with information to share it with investigators.
