Capobiancos may get to see Veronica

Posted: Updated:

Matt and Melanie Capobianco may get to see Veronica soon. In a statement from Capobianco spokesperson Jessica Munday, News 2 has learned the Capobiancos have been notified by their attorney that Mr. Brown's lawyer suggested that a personal visit is an option. However, at this point the details have yet to be determined.

 

Also according to Munday,   reunion facilitator Troy Dunn, who accompanied the family to Oklahoma,  was able to determine Brown's current whereabouts. He traveled there and delivered a personal handwritten note to Mr. Brown via the tribal marshall who was parked outside. The Cherokee marshall hand-delivered the note to Brown whose response was, "I'm not interested in talking."

Cherokee Nation Attorney General Todd Hembree issued the following statement today :

"I was concerned with the Capobianco's judgment in putting forth Troy Dunn as the central spokesperson in their press conference yesterday.  Mr. Dunn's Internet presence reveals that he is a reality TV producer, a stand-up comedian and a "motivational speaker." He is neither a counselor nor mental health expert although he perpetuates that illusion on TV.

Furthermore, in his more than year long involvement with the Capobiancos, he has proven himself not to be a neutral party in this matter, he has made inflammatory statements to the media and has publicly posted degrading comments about Veronica's real father, Dusten Brown.

Troy Dunn is injecting himself into a complex and emotional legal issue for which he sorely lacks any relevant skill set.

My concerns of yesterday were well founded in that today, Troy Dunn and his hired TV cameras were asked to leave Cherokee Nation school premises by Cherokee Nation Marshals. His antics are inappropriate and dangerous. The safety and well-being of our children is our first priority.

His shenanigans and grandstanding is purely for the cameras and self-promotion.  Our concern has been and always will be what is in the best interest of Veronica, a beautiful and innocent Cherokee child.  The Cherokee Nation is not interested in his personal entertainment endeavors and his media circus.

We are steadfast in our commitment to creating a safe environment for Cherokee citizens. We all want to see an amicable resolution to the Veronica Brown impasse. Sadly, Troy Dunn's theatrics are a distraction to this very difficult issue.

Dusten Brown, an American war veteran, deserves his due process and Veronica deserves her privacy."
