In the bodycam footage that captured the murder of Rayshard Brooks on June 12, he referred to Natalie as his “girlfriend”, saying that she had dropped him off at the Wendy’s.
“[White and Brooks] were close friends,” said Drew Findling, Natalie White’s attorney, confirming Brooks’ claims.
Brooks, however, was married to Tomika Miller. Findling refrained from making any further comment on Brooks and White’s relationship “out of respect to the Brooks family who had a funeral today and is grieving the loss of Rayshard Brooks.”
