Ashley Judd felt like a ‘suspect’ after her mother Naomi’s body was discovered

Ashley Judd called out to the authorities for making her feel like a “suspect” during her interrogation while cuddling her dying mother after she was shot.

“I suppose they did as they know,” the 54-year-old actress wrote in an op-ed published in the New York Times, talking about the officers who attended as she carried her “mother’s body into labor” and began asking her questions.

Ashley, who discovered her mother after her suicide attempt, continued: “It is now known that law enforcement personnel must be trained in how to respond and investigate traumatic cases, but the men who were present left us feeling stripped of any sensitive boundaries, I was questioned, and in My condition, as if I was a possible suspect in my mother’s suicide.”

Upon her discovery, Ashley wrote that she just wanted to “comfort her” because “the musician’s life was fading away.” However, she felt it was “obligatory” to stay with the officers and answer their questions, adding that “many of us are socially attached to cooperating with law enforcement.”

“I poured in answers to the many investigative questions directed at me in the four interviews the police insisted they take on the same day my mother died—questions I would never have answered on any other day and questions I would never have thought to ask myself, including: Is a camera Your body is on? Is my audio being recorded again? Where and how will what I share be stored, used and made available to the public?” the “Double Jeopardy” star wrote.

Ashley was also adamant that the file of the investigation into Naomi’s death remain private, including family interviews with authorities.

“This very intimate personal and medical information does not belong to the press, the Internet, or anywhere but our memory,” Ashley wrote.
