The family of 16-year-old Thungutti boy Jai Wright, who died in a police operation over the weekend, have thanked the community for their support and asked for space to grieve.
Jai’s family will not be making any further comments at this point in time. They also want the community to know they are not affiliated with any current march, rally or fundraiser, but will be organising a march in the days and weeks after Jai’s funeral.
The family are taking time to privately remember Jai and plan his funeral. They look forward to a coronial inquest and the opportunity to find the truth about Jai’s death.
