A Burger King surveillance video that is missing footage on the night a Chicago police officer gunned down Laquan McDonald was not tampered with, according to a forensic analysis by the FBI.

Citing an anonymous source close to the investigation, the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the forensic analysis “found no evidence of tampering” with video from the fateful night last year.

The tape has an 86-minute gap, and police spent two hours at the restaurant trig to recover the video.

“The district manager told us it was deleted,” said Jeffrey Neslund, an attorney for the McDonald family. “It is curious that there were 86 minutes missing. We don’t know for a matter of certainty what happened to the Burger King video, but we know what the employees told us.”

But the source said there was no evince of tampering.

“They looked at it and found absolutely no evidence of any tampering or any removal of any portion of the tape,” the source said.

“That system that Burger King has is a mess and it would break down in the weeks and months before this incident. There were major gaps everywhere,” the source added.

Officer Jason Van Dyke, who is white, killed McDonald, who is black.
