The attorneys for Arbery's family, S. Lee Merritt, Benjamin Crump and L. Chris Stewart, released a joint statement on Monday evening:

"The mother and father of Ahmaud Arbery and their legal team met with officials from the Dept. of Justice late last week, including Bobby Christine, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District.
