The following statement is from Johnson's family:
We are extremely grateful to the Cleveland Heights Police Department, the US Marshals and the rest of the task force for their hard work and dedication to finding the individuals responsible for Miriam's death. While this definitely gives us some comfort, we know that this is the beginning of a long process and we are confident that justice will be served. We would also like to thank our friends, family and the city of Cleveland for their love and support throughout this process.
