Former police officer, Gregory McMichael and his son, Travis McMichael are currently in Glynn County Detention Center after being charged for the killing of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery as he jogged in a Georgia neighborhood.
While behind bars, the two are in protective custody away from general population due to the high tension behind this case. The two are not being housed together.
According to TMZ, there are no TVs in the section of the jail where they’re being housed, so they can’t follow the case in the news.
There was also an anonymous note left at the scene where Ahmaud was killed, possibly from an eye witness. The note reads, “Ahmaud, I am so sorry. I should have stopped them. I am so sorry.” No name is signed at the bottom, and no other information or context is provided. It’s also unclear when the card was left there.
The Arbery family attorney Lee Merritt said a pitcure of the note has been sent to GBI, calling it a “critical piece of evidence.”
