More details on the 3rd victim, her death & attorney Ben Crump

As The Shade Room previously reported, a 35-year-old woman named Aisha Haskins-Stephens is the third victim to die after sustaining serious injuries following a stampede at a concert.

The event took place at the Main Street Armory in Rochester, New York on Sunday, March 5. Stephens was pronounced dead on Wednesday, March 8.

The Stephens family has retained nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury lawyer Benjamin Crump. According to the attorney’s official website, Crump is a staunch advocate of social justice and has “represented families in a number of prominent civil rights lawsuits.”

Those cases include the case of Trayvon Martin, a teenager mistakenly killed by a volunteer guarding a neighborhood in Florida in 2012; Michael Brown, who was killed in 2014 by a law enforcement officer in Ferguson, Missouri; Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man unjustly killed while jogging in Georgia; Breonna Taylor, a Black woman murdered by police while she was sleeping in her home in Kentucky; and George Floyd, a man who was wrongly pinned and restrained by police in 2020.

In addition, Crump has reached millions of dollars in payments to victims and their families. He won a $27 million settlement for the family of George Floyd. As well as a $12 million settlement for the Breonna Taylor family.

As The Shade Room previously reported, Crump is also part of legal efforts to secure justice for Shanquella Robinson, a woman vacationing in Cabo, Mexico with three friends, who never returned. home, then beaten by the group on camera.

Attorney Ben Crump demands transparency from GloRilla & Concert officials

Attorney Ben Crump has now released a statement regarding the stampede that occurred at the concert. He condemned officials for not doing more to prevent such incidents.

“It is worrying that following the deaths caused by crowd stamping at the Astroworld Festival, more precautions have not been taken at the concert venues…”

Crump also explained that Stephen’s death was “preventable.” Additionally, he is calling on GloRilla, Main Street Armory and other event officials to show “transparency” and accountability over the tragedy.

“Aisha’s death was completely preventable and we are appealing for transparency from Main Street Armory, GloRilla and event staff as the investigation into how this tragedy unfolded. Concert venues and organizers have an important responsibility to ensure the safety and health of attendees who just want to enjoy the music and have fun with their friends. It is imperative that we find out what happened and hold those responsible accountable.”

According to the press release, the cause of the stampede – which concert attendees initially speculated was due to gunfire – remains “unknown”. The place has been closed since then. However, Crump insisted on justice for Stephen’s family. As well as making sure “that nothing like this ever happens again.”

“We will continue to pray for Aisha and her family as we seek justice in this tragedy – and do what we can to make sure this never happens again.”

The family of the 2nd killed victim is also pursuing legal action

As The Shade Room previously reported, the family of Brandy Miller, 35, has also revealed plans to sue GloRilla, co-stars, Finesse2Tymes, promoters of the concert and venue.

At the time of the report, Miller’s older sister Michelle explained that the family had been working tirelessly to get a celebrity lawyer of their own. Additionally, she said that her family “has no plans to back down” and believes her sister’s death could have been prevented.

Miller’s brother was also present at the concert but watching from a different area. He explained that the show was “completely chaotic from the beginning.”

It is unclear whether the first victim of the stampede will also take legal action

It remains unclear whether the family of the first victim of the concert stampede plans to pursue legal action. As The Shade Room previously reported, the woman has been identified as 33-year-old Rhondesia Belton.

Belton is believed to have been laid to rest on March 14, food and drink for the service served free of charge by People’s Choice Kitchen.
