Mysterious Note Appears at Ahmaud Arbery Murder Site: 'I Should Have Stopped Them'

A somewhat-unsettling note was left at the exact spot where Ahmaud Arbery was shot to death and it seems to suggest there may have been a witness to his murder who feels guilty about not coming forward.

via TMZ:

This card was placed at the makeshift memorial for Ahmaud on the same street he was killed in February. Local news station, News4JAX, captured the photo of the card, and what it says is incredibly haunting.

The note reads, “Ahmaud, I am so sorry. I should have stopped them. I am so sorry.” No name is signed at the bottom, and no other information or context is provided. It’s also unclear when the card was left there.

While the meaning is somewhat ambiguous, the most obvious possible takeaway from this is that there might’ve been a person witnessing the killing first-hand — perhaps from a neighboring home nearby — but only watched from afar instead of stepping in to help.

It could mean any number of things, though … but it certainly appears somebody is feeling regret after the fact about something that could’ve been done to potentially save Ahmaud’s life.

Now, the McMichaels are facing murder and aggravated assault charges — and a new prosecutor has been assigned to the case. As we reported … Ahmaud’s mother says she wants an eye for an eye here, demanding the death penalty for her son’s killers.

We hope whoever left this note comes forward with information that will help get the McMichaels put away.
