Ward, formerly known as Birdie Africa, was a 13-year-old boy living with his mother at the compound of the militant group MOVE when Philadelphia police dropped a bomb on the roof, killing five children and six adults and incinerating 61 row homes.
Ward changed his name in 1986 and lived with his father, Andino Ward. He recovered from serious burns and served in the Army.
His father says Ward was extremely fit and the family is baffled by his death.
