A timeline of eventsTyre Nichols died after a traffic stop with Memphis Police.

Nichols, 29, died Jan. 10, three days after being pulled over in a traffic stop by MPD.

Crump, in a statement released on Twitter, says the Memphis Police Department should release any body camera video captured by the officers involved. "Nobody should ever die from a simple traffic stop - the footage is the only way to discern the true narrative of why and how that happened to Tyre," Crump said.

The next day, Memphis officials announced the video footage related to Nichols' death would be released after the police department completes an internal investigation.

After the city finished an administrative hearing related to the case, five police officers were fired.

MPD said it's fully cooperating with the criminal investigation being conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and the Shelby County District Attorney's Office.

"Transparency remains a priority in this incident, and a premature release could adversely impact the criminal investigation and the judicial process. We are working with the District Attorney's Office to determine the appropriate time to release the video," Memphis Police Chief Cerelyn "CJ" Davis said in statement.
