It is an "act of beauty, an act of convenience and an act of tradition. its own art form", she said of the braiding experience. This is especially ironic considering Knowles openly spoke about the importance of her braids in this magazine's issue.

Investigators believe the rocks may have been taken from another location and thrown off the overpass. However, a sheriff's official previously told Fox 66 the incident was being investigated as a homicide.

Authorities didn't say how many people were in custody, only saying "several teens".

White's family told 7 Action News they could not believe this happened. The rock smashed through the car's windshield and killed him.

On a GoFundMe page created to raise money for White's burial expenses, the young mother spoke of her heartbreak and thanked those who donated for their support.

There's a reward of up to $2500 being offered for information leading to an arrest.
