Attorney in Arbery case says person on video may have been getting water

GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. (WTOC) - The attorney for a man who owns an unfinished home involved in the Ahmaud Arbery case said Friday the person on video may have been getting water.

WTOC now has new videos on three separate days showing someone inside the home.

The attorney said the property owner, Larry English, wants to distance himself from everyone involved in Arbery’s death and wants people to know he had nothing to do with the death.

The first new video is from early 2019. Two kids are seen riding up on bikes and walking into the garage. The video cuts off as they appear to pull wood from the home.

The second video is from November 17th of last year. A man and woman walk into the garage at night. There is no record of a 911 call from neighbors on this night.

The third set of videos are from December 17th of last year. The man walks through the home for a couple minutes. He walks back out the front door and begins jogging down the street. The video is from about 9:30 p.m., according to the attorney.

“It now appears that this young man may have been coming onto the property for water. There is a water source at the dock behind the house as well as a source near the front of the structure. Although these water sources do not appear within any of the cameras’ frames, the young man moves to and from their locations," the attorney Elizabeth Graddy said in a statement. "In the last footage of him captured on December 17, what sounds like water can be heard. He walks out of the house, eases into a jog, and disappears from view.”

WTOC previously reported on instances of someone in the home on Feb. 11 and Feb. 23.

In order for the McMichaels to have a legal right to make a citizen’s arrest on Arbery on Feb. 23, state law requires direct knowledge of a felony, but none of these videos prove Arbery, or anyone else, ever committed a felony on that property.
