The makeshift memorial for the 43-year-old Staten Island man who died after a police officer held him in an illegal chokehold last year was charred in a fire on Monday, police say.

Police determined the fire that destroyed Eric Garner’s Staten Island, NY memorial was “not intentionally set.” Criminality, they say, is not suspected.

The fire occurred at about 10:00 p.m. on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Garner’s family, however, isn’t convinced the fire was a coincidence. Garner’s daughter, Erica, took to Twitter to express her frustration, suggesting the fire was a case of arson.
