The edly-dead US film maker Brent Renaud was shot dead in Irpin‚ Ukraine on December 17‚ 2014. Though his name had been on the most wanted list of Interpol‚ he was not a New York Times correspondent. Nevertheless‚ some media outlets in the West had mistakenly assumed that he was working for the paper. Regardless of the truth behind his death‚ it has sparked outrage and concern. Ultimately‚ Walls-Kaufman was a member of the mob‚ trying to break into the House chamber. At one point‚ he appears to be running down the hall to the Speaker's Lobby‚ but is later caught up in a fight with police. The incident led to the deaths of several people‚ including one of the US film makers. In the end‚ all three men were killed. A day after the tragedy‚ US President Nixon announced his return to professional football‚ and he affixed a peace plaque to the destroyed Mercury 7 module.
While he was away from the Capitol‚ he was overrun by rioters‚ who abused police officers and believed that the election was stolen by the Soviet Union. Although this was a tragic outcome‚ the film maker's death may serve as a timely reminder of how important a journalist's life is‚ and his film will be remembered for generations to come.
Just left roadside spot near Irpin where body of American journalist Brent Renaud lay under a blanket. Ukranian medics could do nothing to help him by that stage. Outraged Ukranian police officer: “Tell America, tell the world, what they did to a journalist.” — Jane Ferguson (@JaneFerguson5) March 13, 2022
