Michael Brown's mother Lesley McSpadden speaks out to ABC

Michael Brown's mother spoke to ABC, saying that she is waiting for justice after the death of her son.

“Arresting this man and making him accountable for his actions...that’s justice,” Lesley McSpadden, Brown's mother, told ABC and  Good Morning America.

Autopsy-related questions brought up in Monday's Good Morning America interview were directed toward the family's attorney, Benjamin Crump, as it was difficult for McSpadden to talk about the incident.

“It confirms our worst fears that the witnesses were telling the truth, that her son was shot multiple times,” Crump told ABC . “The most troubling was the head shot, you know, it’s just not justified in any way, fashion or form to execute this child like this in broad daylight.”

McSpadden also said in the interview that the release of security footage involving her son has nothing to do with what "(the officer) did to (her) child."

CNN reported Monday that a second autopsy showed that Brown did not engage in a struggle, according to Dr. Michael Baden, New York City's former chief medical examiner who was involved in the independent autopsy for the family.

"St. Louis County police have said the teenager reached into a police officer's car and tried to grab the officer's weapon, and a struggle ensued," CNN said.

The family recently released results of an autopsy, showing that Brown had been shot six times .
