The band's response to 16-year-old Jessica Michalik's death in a crowd crush is described as "half baked"...
LIMP BIZKIT are to be questioned further by investigators probing the death of a teenage fan at their BIG DAY OUT SHOW in Australia earlier this spring.
On day two of the inquest into the death of 16-year-old Jessica Michalik, who died as a result of injuries sustained when parts of the 60,000 strong crowd surged forward Limp Bizkit again came in for heavy criticism, this time for their conduct in the aftermath of the accident.
James Hmelnitsky, a lawyer representing Jessica’s family, told the Sydney Court yesterday (November 20) that the band’s statements about what happened were “half-baked”. He said that an unsigned response to investigators enquiries faxed by frontman Fred Durst through his lawyer was unhelpful and raised “more questions than it answers”.
On day one of the hearing, the court was hold that Durst had claimed to have visited Jessica as she lay dying in hospital. The officer in charge of the investigation into the accident, Detective Inspector Gregory Bamford, said to the best of his knowledge Durst made no such trip.
The inquest continues.
