America’s beloved Anne Heche, who was removed from life support on Sunday, filmed a Lifetime movie about sex trafficking before her deadly crash.
Anne Heche’s Deadly Car Crash
Anne Heche’s spokesperson told reporters Heche was declared brain dead as of last Friday, one week after she crashed her blue Mini Cooper at high speed into a small house in Los Angeles. The crash left the house on fire, along with her car.
Shortly after the accident, Heche became unconscious and slipped into a coma, with “significant” pulmonary injuries that required mechanical ventilation and burns that required surgical intervention. It was reported, that allegedly Heche, 53, had drugs, cocaine, and fentanyl in her system at the time of the car crash.
The police said last Saturday they are closing their investigation into the incident.
An article by NBC News released a statement last Friday, on behalf of Heche’s family and friends, “We have lost a bright light, a kind and most joyful soul, a loving mother, and a loyal friend.”
Before Anne Heche’s deadly car crash, she was filming a Lifetime movie focused on sex trafficking called the “Girl in Room 13”.
Sex trafficking of women is very prevalent in the United States and around the world. According to PolarisProject.org, 25 million people around the world are being trafficked and an average prostituted victim may be forced to have sex 20 to 48 times a day.
According to Polaris, sex trafficking comes in different ways and forms: “the top ten types of trafficking include Escort Services; Pornography; Illicit Massage, Health, and Beauty; Residential-Based Commercial Sex; Personal Sexual Servitude; Outdoor Solicitation; Domestic Work; Emerging Types; Bars, Strip Clubs and Cantinas, and Illicit Activities.”
Lifetime reports they will move forward with the rollout of the film. Amy Winter, executive VP, and head of programming stated, “This project is important to … each and every one of us. We all started to make a film that would bring attention to the appalling issue of human sex trafficking. We hope that this film moves you and that you are just as inspired as Anne was to help us with our with our mission to stop violence against women.”
