ORLANDO, Fla.– The attorney representing the family of Kevin Aldophe is questioning the proof in the deadly officer included shooting that happened previously this year.
The deadly shooting happened on February 18 at the Summerfield houses.
Lawyer Carlus Haynes said he looked over the proof assembled by private investigators.
“We reached the conclusion that OPD intentionally, and I’m going to say this clear as day, intentionally controlled some of that proof in order to justify the shooting,” Haynes said.
Recently, the State Lawyer’s Office revealed it isn’t seeking charges against the officers and said the shooting was justified.
News 6 gotten body camera videos from authorities. OPD’s forensic video expert assembled 3 angles to show what happened the day of the deadly shooting.
When they saw the 22-year-old in a stolen automobile, authorities said it began. Private investigators said Aldophe was likewise implicated of robbing a home.
Officers chased Aldophe. Private investigators said eventually during the chase they opened fire.
According to the SAO’s letter decreasing prosecution, private investigators said Aldophe fired at officers first, however Haynes doesn’t think that happened.
“There was absolutely nothing in the report suggesting there was any gunshot residue on either of his hands,” Haynes said.
He is likewise questioning how private investigators assembled the body camera videos. He said the audio of Aldophe presumably shooting his gun first came from an officer’s camera who wasn’t there at the time the shooting presumably happened.
“Basically, they attempted and took the noise to match it up and they were of the belief that he released his gun,” Haynes said.
OPD’s body cams record one minute prior to the officer presses record. That is called a “pre-event,” however there is no audio because first minute.
The forensic video expert wrote in the report he synchronized all 3 body camera videos. He wrote in the report, “The noise of the first shot, which was tape-recorded by Officer Hayles’ BWC is synchronized to the accurate ‘pre-event’ moment when Officer Madison’s BWC depicts Mr. Aldophe shooting his weapon.”
Aldophe’s sister said they’re still entrusted questions.
“We’re just confused today and we need to understand what’s going on and we need justice for my bro,” Alexandra Aldophe said.
