A family and their community are mourning the death of Barkindji man Anzac Sullivan, the fourth Indigenous person to die in Australian custody in three weeks.
Mr Sullivan, 37, died during a police pursuit in Broken Hill on 18 March, the Aboriginal Legal Service of NSW and the ACT said on Thursday.
Greens senator and Gunnai Gunditjmara and Djab Wurrung woman, Lidia Thorpe, expressed her sympathies to Mr Sullivan’s family and community, saying First Nations people are sad and “angry beyond words”.
