The sister of Ahmaud Arbery’s killer posted a disturbing picture of his dead body on Snapchat ‘because she’s a true crime fan,’ Your Content has learned.

Travis McMichael’s sister has admitted to posting the image of the 25-year-old’s dead body lying on the ground on Snapchat, according to the Sun.

The horrifying picture showing a blood-soaked Ahmaud, surrounded by crime scene tape and law enforcement officers has been obtained by The Sun after being circulated in the local community of Brunswick, Georgia.

Lindsay McMichael, the sister and daughter of suspects Travis and Gregory McMichael, has admitted posting the unedited image on her Snapchat account – but claimed she didn’t mean it maliciously.

Lindsay, 30, said: “I had no nefarious or malicious intent when I posted that picture.”

The thing is I’m a huge fan of true crime – I listen to four or five podcasts a week – I’m constantly watching that sort of thing.

“It was more of a, ‘Holy s***, I can’t believe this has happened’.

“It was absolutely poor judgement.”

He said: “The picture Lindsay McMichael posted was very disturbing and very disturbing to the family.

“It also highlights that there are probably more video and more images of before, during and after Ahmaud’s murder – these images aren’t meant for public consumption in this way.

“It actually fits in with the pattern of the McMichael family engaging in a weird, violent form of voyeurism.

The lawyer for the family of Ahmaud, Lee Merritt, slammed Lindsay’s actions in an interview with The Sun.

“First you have [Gregory] McMichael sharing with a news station a video of the murder then you have his daughter sharing an image of Ahmaud’s bullet-ridden body on Snapchat. It’s deeply disturbing behavior.”
