A declaration from John’s father, Chris, reviews, “The discomfort of our loss from our boy John deficient home active from an occasion such as this is excruciating. He was an attractive boy who simply wished to appreciate his very first performance occasion with good friends, whom he cherished spending quality time with greater than anything else.”
He continues, “If this claim stops also one family from needing to go with the severe discomfort and misery that we have actually withstood, after that it is the least we can do to recognize John’s memory.”

Hilgert was just one of 10 to shed his life at the show. The primary concerns to be responded to by private investigators, what occurred and who is responsible?
Sources near to Travis have actually been determined, he really did not know the degree of what was taking place in the group. There was likewise a clear malfunction in interaction amongst emergency situation employees, after we acquired video clip of cops taking pleasure in the show greater than 25 mins after the Houston Fire Chief apparently called the performance a “Mass Casualty Event.”
Travis’ lawyer, Ed McPherson, informs us, “It was reported that the Operations Plan marked that just the celebration director and exec producers command to quit the show, neither of which becomes part of Travis’s staff. This additionally contravenes of HPD’s very own previous actions when it closed down the power and sound at this really event when the performance ran over 5 mins back in 2019.”
