I know this is old news. I still want to post it.
I despise Nancy Grace nearly as much as I despise Bill O’Reilly. So I was not at all upset when I heard that she’s being sued for the wrongful death of Melinda Duckett. You might remember Ms. Duckett as the young lady from Florida whose 2-year-old son disappeared mysteriously. Nancy Grace suckered this young lady into giving an “interview” on the disappearance only to spend most of the time badgering her.
The parents of a woman who committed suicide shortly after a grilling by Nancy Grace today filed a lawsuit against the TV host, claiming that their daughter was driven to her death by the hard-charging former prosecutor. In a wrongful death lawsuit, the parents of Melinda Duckett charge that Grace duped their daughter into an interview about Duckett’s missing two-year-old son, Trenton. That interview, which aired on Grace’s CNN Headline News show after Duckett’s death, was more of a cross-examination, with Grace peppering the 21-year-old woman with questions about her whereabouts at the time of her son’s late-August disappearance. On September 8, a day after her interview with Grace, Duckett used a shotgun to kill herself.
Ms. Duckett may indeed be responsible for her child’s disappearance. I don’t know. There certainly are some legitimate questions raised in the whole situation based on what has gone on and what has been found during the investigation. But Nancy Grace is a damn (annoying) talking head now, not the investigator responsible for finding out what happened. She needs to quit acting like she actually matters and go back to just annoying viewers rather than viewers *and* guests. The Smoking Gun article has all nine pages of the legal complaint.
