These new court documents serve to amend a lawsuit against the three officers, Jonathan Mattingly, Myles Cosgrove, and the since-fired Brett Hankison, involved in her death, and presents a new narrative on what exactly transpired the night that they killed Breonna. While both sides have settled on the fact that they did, in fact, knock before entering her apartment, they disagree on whether or not the officers identified themselves, with Breonna’s family claiming they did not.
