The suspected white supremacist who participated in and filmed the lynching of an innocent Black man Ahmaud Arbery, was arrested Thursday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.
William ‘Roddie’ Bryan Jr., 50, was arrested on charges of felony murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment, officials announced.
His alleged accessories to the lynching, Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son Travis McMichael, 34, have been charged with murder and aggravated assault for the shooting death of unarmed Arbery, 25, in Brunswick, Georgia, back in February.
Bryan, a neighbor of the McMichaels, watched and shot the footage of the attack, and allegedly shared the video with other suspected white supremacists in the community they are from. It was reported this week that the daughter of one of the killers, shared an image of Arbery’s dead body on snapchat.
Many people allege that these suspected white supremacists were sharing these images among each other as some type of snuff film entertainment.
