Caitlyn Jenner was involved in a car crash Feb. 7, 2015 that left her neighbor, Kim Howe, dead. Now a new report claims that authorities have put her under a ‘special microscope’ and are taking the investigation so seriously that they’ve involved the Major Crimes unit!
Caitlyn Jenner‘s car crash investigation is far from over. The 65-year-old former Olympian has been working diligently with authorities ever since she was involved in a multi-car crash in February of 2015. Although authorities have reportedly decided that Caitlyn wasn’t texting at the time of the fatal crash, the LA County Sheriff will send the case to the Downtown LA District Attorney’s office, that is normally reserved for dealing with cases involving kidnappers, murderers and extortionists. So why is Caitlyn’s misdemeanor being treated as a felony?
Caitlyn’s investigation is just weeks from being completed, it’s taken four months so far. It’s still up in the air whether Caitlyn will be charged with anything, although her neighbor was killed as a result of the crash. Caitlyn could be charged with a misdemeanor, according to TMZ, but they also claim that law enforcement sources familiar with the case are “surprised” that the Major Crimes Unit in LA is getting involved to oversee the case. Normally, the case would be sent to the local DA which is Van Nuys but Caitlyn’s case is being treated differently, perhaps because she is a celebrity, claims the report.
Caitlyn Jenner’s Car Accident — Olympian Faces Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Caitlyn is reportedly getting sued by his neighbor, Kim Howe‘s, stepchildren. They have reportedly hired lawyers and they want to prove that Caitlyn owes them something for accidentally killing their mom. But we have told you that since Caitlyn was not speeding, texting or driving under the influence, it’s very unlikely that the children would be able to prevail. At the time of the crash, Caitlyn released this statement: “My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident. It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible.”
