FILE - In this Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014 file photo, police wait to advance after tear gas was used to disperse a crowd during a protest for Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. The 18-year-old black man was fatally shot by a white officer, Darren Wilson. A grand jury declined to indict Wilson, and the U.S. Justice Department opted against civil rights charges. Wilson later resigned. The death of Brown, who was unarmed, led to months of occasionally violent protests and became a catalyst for the Black Lives Matter movement, which rebukes police treatment of minorities.

The tree was toppled over by a massive storm Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017. Four generations of Brown’s family have spent countless hours at the tree and often took out-of-town visitors there, some from as far away as Turkey. (Michael Brown via AP)
