The McMichaels have been held without bail in a Glynn County jail as GBI continues their investigation. More than two months passed before authorities arrested Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son, Travis McMichael, 34, on charges of felony murder and aggravated assault. Gough has previously tried to distance Bryan from the McMichaels' actions, telling reporters Tuesday that Bryan "is not now, and has never been more than a witness to the shooting of Mr. Arbery".

ABC News has reached out to Bryan's attorney, Kevin Gough, for comment. Their attorneys have maintained their innocence in previous statements.

The anti-choice activist passed away in 2017, but not before sitting down with filmmakers to tell her whole story. She led the case in the Supreme Court after she fell pregnant in 1970 and was financially unstable.

Gregory McMichael retired previous year after more than two decades as an investigator for the local prosecutor's office.

Even as supporters of Arbery's family celebrated those arrests, they called for Bryan to be arrested as well, claiming he was involved in the incident.

"Without his video there would be no case", Gough said Monday. "He simply takes it all in", Merritt said.

Details pertaining to the initial investigation of Arbery's death, which has been handled by four different prosecutors, have been heavily scrutinized in recent weeks, and attorneys for Arbery's mother have charged that it was "mishandled from the very beginning". "When the criminals remain [to be] William Bryan, Gregory McMichael and Travis McMichael", said Merritt in a video posted on his Instagram account.
