Nancy Grace has settled a lawsuit from the family of a woman who committed suicide the day after she taped a combative phone interview with the Headline News anchor, reports the New York Post.
Melinda Duckett’s family claimed Grace inflicted "emotional distress" on her, leading to her suicide on the day the interview was scheduled to air, the story says.
Grace had interviewed Duckett about the disappearance of her 2-year old son, Trenton, with Grace demanding to know Duckett’s whereabouts on the day he went missing, the article adds.
Grace will create a $200,000 trust fund dedicated to finding the boy. According to a statement from the family’s attorneys, "After four years of litigation and extensive discovery, the parties now agree that Nancy Grace, the producers of her program and CNN engaged in no intentional wrongdoing."
