Lunahi told News 9, “When they flipped him over you could see all the blood on his face, it was… he was disfigured, you couldn’t recognize him.” “My mom was taking a video and asking, ‘What are they doing this for? Why?’ And they didn’t give really an explanation.”

Nair told News 9, “I knew he was dead,” when she saw them take his body out on a stretcher. She said he [Luis Rodriguez] was trying to defuse the fight. She said, “I told them I hit her and he was just trying to reach me.” “Why didn’t they arrest me,” she asked.
