The family living in the city of Memphis, Tennessee, got a heartbreak as they got the news of Tyre, their beloved family member passing away. Tyre Deandre Nichols has been a long-term employee of FedEx and found his peace of mind by catching beautiful moments of life with his photographic skills, present on his own website. Being a common citizen, Tyre was definitely a family man and always hoped to live a happy life with his loved ones. Tyre was born on June 5, 1993, and is currently 29 years old.

Before migrating to Tennessee, Nichols and his family used to live in California. Tyre pediatric has revealed that a patient of theirs is severely underweight due to Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s is a chronic condition that affects the digestive system and can cause malnutrition. His weight loss was a result of the disease-causing inflammation and affecting their ability to absorb nutrients from food. His medical condition was also a main cause for his injuries to reach a life-threatening level after the accident.

Into the Details Of the Incident

The suffering of Tyre started when he was severely beaten to death by five police officers on the night of January 7, 2023. The police officers on the scene claimed that the victim was under custody for his reckless driving. The initial hesitation shown by the culprit made the officials stop him by force using teaser and pepper spray. The bystanders have still made some unclear claims, but it was reported that Tyre was clearly seen recklessly beaten by the police officers in charge.

The scene took an ugly turn, and seeing Tyre covered fully in blood, he was immediately admitted to a hospital, where he fought the battle of his life and death with all he got. The 29-year-old lost his battle and said goodbye to the world three days later on 10th January. The medical experts who were in charge of Tyre mentioned that the patient lost his life due to severe damages caused due to extremely violent beating on his head and back.

The people present at the scene have claimed that Tyre was beaten up with a baton while he tried his best to stop the police. From CCTV footage of people around it was made clear to the jurisdiction that not only illogical beating but unethical abuse through words were also made by the police officers. As the incident angered the common people in the city, many gathered to support Tyre’s family, and the family member also hired an attorney to represent them before the court.

A detailed investigation was carried out by the court, and it was also observed that many false claims were made by the police officers who were held responsible for the demise of the victim. Many culprits said that it was due to Nichols threatening to the police officers that he would beat them to death that caused them to forcefully hit him. It was also claimed that Nichols tried to hold a hand of their weapons which angered the officers. Hence there was no such clear provocation done by Nichols which might lead to such an intense fight.

After an in-depth analysis of the footage received, it was made clear that no violence or abuse was done by the side Tyre. All the proceedings of the case filed were done by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. The investigations and hearings were mainly done between the period of 15th to 20th January. Following the completion of the investigation, the police officers were charged with the allegations of murder and abuse and were arrested on the 20th and 26th of this month.

It was only the arrest of the culprits, but a claim by the jurisdiction was made that the footages claimed were not very clear, and it is really difficult even to analyze why Tyre was arrested in the first place. It was a highly shameful act to watch police officers with almost six years of experience would do such an unethical act.

The citizens have expressed their fear after seeing such frighting incidents that they don’t feel protected by the police nowadays. It has been an unimaginable couple of weeks for the Nichols family, and supporters have expressed grief for Tyre.
