Family Of Venice Boardwalk Tragedy Victim Serves Public Record Requests:

The family of Alice Gruppioni, the Italian newlywed tragically killed on the Venice Beach boardwalk Aug. 3, has served a public records request on several local agencies seeking information to help answer questions as to how such a tragedy could have occurred.

Gregory L. Bentley, partner at Shernoff Bidart Echeverria Bentley LLP, said the family would like answers as to how and why this terrible event happened.

“We trust that the City and the various agencies will be forthcoming in producing this vital information affecting public safety,” Bentley said.

Those entities the family is seeking public records from are the Los Angeles City Department of Transportation, Los Angeles City Bureau of Street Services (Department of Public Works), Los Angeles City Department of Parks and Recreation (Venice Beach Recreation Center), Los Angeles City Council,  Venice Neighborhood Council, Los Angeles Police Department, and the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The filing includes requests for information such as Venice Beach Public Safety Needs Assessment Report ordered by the 11th District Councilman Mike Bonin, historical records for the last 20 years regarding the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of the Boardwalk, complaints communicated to the city of Los Angeles, directly or through related entities, regarding the safety of pedestrians along the Boardwalk.

The filing also seeks any incident reports, accident reports, records of 911 calls, radio calls, service logs, or requests for service from police or fire, regarding incidents within the last 20 years of unauthorized automobiles or motorized vehicles driving onto the Boardwalk.

Suspect Nathan Louis Campbell, a 38-year-old transient from Colorado, pleaded not guilty Aug. 6 to one count of murder, 16 counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and 17 counts of hit-and-run.

Campbell is due back in court Sept. 4.
