The owner of the rental home that Anne Heche’s automobile slammed into, Lynne Mishele, has made a statement.
She expressed her sympathies in a video on Instagram, writing: “Hi, this is Lynne Mishele. The news of Anne Heche passing is devastating. Her family and her friends and her children especially really have suffered a great loss and my heart goes out to them. This entire situation is tragic and there really are just no words. I’m sending love to everybody involved.”
Mar Vista, a section of Los Angeles, California, that is close to the coast and places like Santa Monica, Venice Beach, and the Marina Del Ray district, is where Mishele’s house was.
Heche’s blue Mini Cooper nearly made it past the house before starting to catch fire. According to reports, it took 59 firefighters more than an hour to put out the fire and free Heche from her vehicle.
Amazingly, Mishele, who was at home at the time, avoided harm.
According to People, Mishele’s attorney had this to say regarding the collision: “Ms. Mishele is devastated by what happened to her on Friday — not only because she and her pets almost lost their lives, but because all of her property, including items of profound sentimental value, were destroyed. She asks for privacy at this incredibly difficult time.”
She posted a video the day before expressing her grief, appreciating everyone’s support: “Hi everyone. It’s Lynne Mishele. Still recovering and trying to figure out up from down. But I did want to send a huge, huge thank you to everybody from all over the world for the overwhelming amount of love and compassion and generosity and kindness that people have shown over the past week. It’s obviously been the most insane, traumatic time. Confusing. Eventually I’ll try to get back to everybody and read everybody’s comments but I am, just, really … thank you, thank you everybody. From the bottom of my heart, it’s really, truly overwhelming. You guys have really impacted my life in a very profound way. So thank you so much to everybody, and I will keep you updated. Thanks.”
She continued by displaying her canines, Brie and Reuben, and expressing her gratitude to everyone for supporting them. And that from the Valley, her tortoise says “hello.”
Mishele founded Creative Organization in Los Angeles and is a certified professional organiser. She stated that she is an, “effective organizing professional with expertise in approaching organizing issues with a creative outlook. An innovative organizer that has a proven track record with establishing successful systems for each individual client.”
Mishele formerly held a marketing position at Sony Pictures Entertainment before working as a travel director at Citigroup.
