The body-worn camera footage from the fatal police pursuit that occurred on April 8, in Windsor Mill, was released Thursday.

The person who died was previously identified as 37-year-old Dimeka Thornton of Windsor Mill, Maryland.

The release of body-worn camera footage in this incident was delayed to allow the family and subject officers to view the video before it was released to the public.

The IID continues to investigate the circumstances of the fatal pursuit.

Police say on April 8, at approximately 12:15 a.m., officers were on patrol in the 1800 block of Belmont Avenue in Windsor Mill when they saw a reported stolen car parked in a hotel parking lot.

While officers were still in the area, an adult male entered the car.

Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the car, but the man failed to stop.

Officers pursued the car for several minutes. During the pursuit, the man drove onto the exit ramp of the I-695 outer loop prior to exit 18 (Liberty Road) into oncoming traffic, when he struck a car head-on.

Officers did not follow the car onto the exit ramp.

The driver of the other car, an adult woman, and the man who fled police, were both taken to an area hospital where the adult woman was pronounced dead.
