In response to reports of additional video footage in the Ahmaud Arbery investigation, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Saturday confirmed the existence of additional footage, but declined to release the video due to the ongoing investigation.
“We are indeed reviewing additional video footage and photographs as part of the active case. It is important to note that this footage was reviewed at the beginning of the GBI investigation and before the arrests of Gregory and Travis McMichael,” said GBI spokesperson Nelly Miles.
“At this time, this evidence is not being released due to the active and ongoing investigation,” Miles said.
If anyone has any new information regarding this case, it can be submitted to the GBI Tip Line at 1-800-597-TIPS(8477) or https://gbi.georgia.gov/submit-tips-online.
Earlier this week, the GBI arrested Gregory McMichael and his son Travis McMichael. Both were charged with murder and aggravated assault. They have been taken into custody and will be booked into the Glynn County jail.
On Feb. 23, Arbery was in the Satilla Shores neighborhood in Brunswick, when both Gregory and Travis McMichael confronted Arbery with two firearms. During the encounter, GBI officials say Travis McMichael shot and killed Arbery.
