Homeowner Linked to Ahmaud Arbery Case Said Residence Was Never Robbed


A Georgia homeowner linked to the Ahmaud Arbery case said that his residence, which was under construction, was never burglarized.


“I’ve never had a police report or anything stolen from my property, or any kind of robbery,” Larry English told The Washington Post in a Sunday report.


The 50-year-old’s current home is in Douglas, Georgia, but he was having a waterfront home built in Brunswick about 90 miles away. That new residence is one of the key elements in the Arbery case. The victim was shot nearby on February 23 after two men–father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael–confronted him. The elder McMichael allegedly told cops that they suspected the alleged victim as the suspect in a series of recent burglaries. No charges were forthcoming until recently publicized video apparently showed that the duo instigated the confrontation with Arbery.


911 audio from before the shooting shows a caller reporting a black man in a white T-shirt at a house under construction.


The operator asked if the subject was breaking into it.
