Actress Ashley Judd, daughter of Naomi and sister of Wynonna, who comprised the award-winning country music duo The Judds, recently told The Guardian that she went back to EMDR therapy after being traumatized by news outlets who chose to publish pictures of her mother’s death scene. Ms. Judd advocates that the Tennesee State Legislature restricts journalists’ access to non-criminal death scene photos, suicide notes, and other evidence to protect the surviving family members and the deceased person’s legacy.
