This week, both Botham’s brother and father embraced Guyger despite the fact she’s responsible for Jean’s death.
While speaking at Dallas West Church of Christ, Botham’s father Bertram said, “I’m not really surprised because we know how we raised him… The Holy Spirit was working,” Bertram said. He also said he would like to be Guyger’s friend, “I’d like to become your friend at some point… I think I have the ability to do it and I would like to be a friend despite my loss. That’s why we are Christians.” (Newsone)
