On April 12, 2015, Freddie Gray was arrested by Baltimore police for carrying a pocket knife. A week later, the 25-year-old Gray died as a result of the injuries he sustained while in police custody. His death was ruled a homicide by a medical examiner and sparked unrest across the city. Now, six Baltimore police officers are facing trial.
Nine months after Gray’s death, countless questions remain unanswered. How was Gray injured? What happened inside the police van? Why did police chase him? CNN explores these questions and the events that took place the morning of Gray’s arrest in the CNN Special Report: “Who Killed Freddie Gray?” produced in partnership with The Baltimore Sun. The hour-long program will air on Tuesday, January 19th, at 9PM/ET, and will feature behind-the-scenes footage of the police investigation as well as exclusive interviews with close friends of Gray.
CNN correspondent Miguel Marquez sits down with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and new police commissioner Kevin Davis to examine the impact of Gray’s death and the riots that followed. Also featured are Baltimore Sun reporters Justin George, who was the only journalist embedded with the Baltimore City Police Department during the Gray investigation and Mark Puente whose investigative journalism has outlined allegations of police brutality. In addition, the program features The Baltimore Sun’s award-winning coverage of the unrest, including exclusive video taken during the police investigation and extensive footage about the case and Gray’s autopsy, which was obtained solely by The Baltimore Sun.
