CBS picked up on the story about a teenage boy, 13, killing his sister by attempting “WWE style wrestling moves.” The entire story can be viewed here.
Wrestlezone has been contacted by a WWE representative regarding the report, and below is WWE’s official statement.
The death of Viloude Louis is a tragedy, and our condolences go out to her family.
WWE urges restraint in reporting this unfortunate incident as if it were the result of a WWE wrestling move. As in similar cases, criminal intent to harm and a lack of parental supervision have been the factors resulting in a tragic death.
Authorities have already charged the accused with second degree murder and determined that this was not an accidental death due to a wrestling move.
