A state investigator alleges that the shooter who killed Ahmaud Arbery said a racial epiteth as he stood over the lifeless body of Ahmaud Arbery.
This information has come to light amidst national protest about police brutality against Black African Americans.
The man filming the murder, William Bryan, stated that he overheard Travis McMichael say “Fucking Nigger” prior to the arrival of the police.
Bryan provided this information to the investigators a week after the arrest of McMichael and his father, Greg.
The testimony presented on Thursday, May 28th will help determine if federal hate crime charges will apply.
On February 23, 2020 Ahmaud Arbery was followed and gunned down by Greg and Travis
McMichael who claimed Arbery became violent during a citizens arrest. After over two
months later, the McMichaels were both arrested and charged with felony murder.
