Simone Biles breaks silence after brother arrested in connection with triple homicide

Simone Biles breaks silence after brother arrested in connection with triple homicide”

Simone Biles spoke out publicly for the first time on Sunday since her brother was arrested and charged with murder last week for his alleged involvement in a New Year's Eve triple homicide in Ohio.

"Still having a hard time processing last week's news", she shared on social media. "There is nothing that I can say that will heal anyone's pain, but I do want to express my honest condolences to everyone affected by this awful tragedy".

Biles, 22, the most decorated American gymnast of all time, also asked for privacy as her family deals "with our pain".

"The strongest people I've met have not been given an easier life".

Officials said on December 31 that an "uninvited group" entered the rental house and "an altercation ensued" with the invited guests that led to gunfire.

"The relentless persistence of Cleveland police homicide detectives helped secure an indictment in this case", Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O'Malley said in a statement.

Stacey Ervin Jr. has alluded to the arrest of girlfriend Simone Biles' older brother Tevin Biles-Thomas.

In 2017, the gold medalist shared a series of photos with her brother. "They've learned to create strength and happiness from dark places".

"Missing you a lil extra today", she captioned the image, to which her boyfriend, a gymnast turned pro wrestler, replied, "I miss you too babe I'll see you very soon!" Delvante Johnson, 19, and Toshaun Banks, 21, were pronounced dead at the scene, and Devaughn Gibson, 23, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

"Eating my feelings don't talk to me", she tweeted at 9:51 p.m. on Thursday. Her and her younger sister then grew up with their maternal grandfather and his wife in Houston, while Biles-Thomas and their other sibling moved to Cleveland with a different relative.

Simone and Tevin grew up in OH and were adopted by their grandparents, who Simone often refers to as mom and dad.

Biles-Thomas was held without bond in Georgia and is set to next appear in court on September 13 in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court for arraignment.

The 24-year-old, who serves in the US Army, is being held in prison in Georgia, where he was arrested last week.

Court records do not list an attorney for Biles-Thomas.
