Nancy Grace is getting sued, according to People.
The family of Melinda Duckett, a Florida woman who shot herself to death after being forcefully questioned by CNN’s Nancy Grace about her son’s disappearance, sued the network and the Headline News host on Tuesday, claiming they bear responsibility for her death.
Duckett’s relatives claim the interview caused emotional distress that led to the suicide, the Associated Press reports.
CNN Headline News declined to comment specifically on the lawsuit. In a release, a spokeswoman said, “We stand by Nancy Grace and fully support her, as we have from the beginning of this matter.”
Duckett’s son, Trenton, was reported missing on Aug. 27. Duckett appeared on Grace’s show on Sept. 7; she committed suicide the following day. Duckett has been named the prime suspect in her son’s disappearance. Authorities said last week they believe there is a chance the boy is still alive.
This whole thing is ugly. I hope they find the kid alive and well. Sounds like Nance needs to ease the f*ck up and turn in her imaginary badge
