The White family’s attorney issued a statement. It says, “The family hopes that Mr. Miller is truly remorseful. The family expects that Mr. Miller’s actions will further exemplify that remorse by following through with the scholarship in honor of Edward David White.”
Miller claims he would like to honor David White in some way. White’s family requested he establish a scholarship for students at West Philadelphia High School, which White once attended. It is decades too late for David White. But education might change the trajectory of some children in White and Miller’s old neighborhood.
