This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Well this isn't a surprise.
On Tuesday, a man named Phoenix Sundown was sentenced to three years in jail for harassing an underage star on the show Dance Moms back in September of 2015.
For those who don't remember, Phoenix sent the unidentified girl A LOT of creepy material including an Elvis blanket, a coffee maker, a scrapbook and handwritten letters. While no physically harmful material was found in the mailings, the sexually explicit content was emotionally scarring to the young girl in question.
As for the total of Phoenix's crimes, he was charged with four counts of distributing harmful matter to a minor.
