“We really don’t want to get into the facts here,” she said. “There’s a lot of research that needs to be done,” she added. “So all we’re asking is that everyone keep an open mind and let the system do its part and let the constitution do its part, and that means for now he’s innocent until proven guilty.”

Last week, Joshua’s attorney, Christopher Downey, told reporters that his client was not the one responsible for Takeoff’s death, adding that widespread speculation on social media had made Joshua’s situation worse.

“I have seen nothing to suggest that Cameron Joshua had anything to do with the shooting, that he fired a firearm that caused it [Takeoff’s] death or was he even involved,” Downey said. “As far as I know, there was some kind of skirmish.

Downey continued, “I know all the Instagram sleuths. They remind me of the blind man trying to decipher an elephant, grabbing its trunk and thinking it’s a snake. The bottom line is that they are wrong. Cameron Joshua didn’t film Takeoff.”
