Philando Castile’s Family Reaches $3 Million Death Settlement
The mother of Philando Castile has reached an estimated $3 million settlement with the city of St. Anthony, Minnesota in his death according to CNN. This settlement comes weeks after Philando was killed in front of his family during a traffic stop for allegedly “smelling like weed“, according to his killer. Philando was killed by St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez during a traffic stop. Yanez was acquitted of his killing just last week.
The settlement was announced Monday in a joint statement from the attorneys representing his mother, Valerie Castile and the city of St. Anthony.
“No amount of money could ever replace Philando, with resolution of the claims the family will continue to deal with their loss through the important work of the Philando Castile Relief Foundation.”
SMH, hopefully his family can ease the pain now, just a little bit?
