Nei video si vede Zak massacrato di botte dai proprietari di una gioielleria nel centro di Atene e la polizia che cerca violentemente di arrestare Zak mentre era a terra moribondo dopo "averlo scambiato per un ladro". Un ladro tumefatto, coperto di sangue e che stava già morendo. Image

Secondo il rapporto forense, Zak è morto per le ferite multiple che ha subito.
