The daughter of Michael Landon He wants me to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of his 24-year-old son who was hit by a bus in Los Angeles.
Shawna Landon, who is one of nine children of the late The Ingalls Family star, said in an exclusive interview page six who believes the circumstances of the death of Dylan Lupia they are mysterious.
The late actor’s daughter, who is a real estate agent in Los Angeles, said Lupia was hit by a westbound bus on Palos Verdes Boulevard at 7:31 pm on August 17. The coroner’s office did not inform him of this Death of his son by the following night when he wanted to watch a movie with his daughters Sophia, 15, and Olivia, 10.
“Dylan walked down the alley to the bus,” he explained. “The bus driver claimed he didn’t see anyone.”
It wasn’t until a few days later, when Shawna, 50, visited the site with her sister Leslie Landon, that she concluded the bus driver’s story wasn’t believable.
“There was no way that bus driver could have seen my son walking toward the bus with his eyes on the road. My son ran on the bike path. My sister said to me, ‘Shawna, that’s impossible.’”
Shawna found this out later the bus driver is said not to have stopped after the accident. “He went to the nearest bus stop and then called and said he thought the bus had been vandalized,” he added.
There was another person on the bus at the time of Lupia’s accident and the Landon family is keen to speak to him or her.
“We don’t know anything about this passenger,” Shawna said. “All we know is that this bus driver did not follow policies and procedures and received no information from this passenger. Makes no sense”.
“If I had looked in the rearview mirror, which I would have done if some glass broke and made such an impact, you would look in the rearview mirror, you would see my son lying on the road,” he said.
Shawna, the sixth child born in the beloved TV actor’s family, said that her son, who adored his younger sisters, did not have an easy life. “He definitely had his issues. It was hard for him to keep jobs and maintain relationships. He lost his father to a drug overdose when he was 5 years old, so he went through a lot. He did his best and fought .”
Shawna got emotional as she theorized why Dylan was in the area when she died. “My mother lived near there. He died in 2015 and they were very close,” he revealed.
Michael Landon died of pancreatic cancer in 1991 at the age of 54.. Although Shawna was separated from her mother when she was 10, she remained close to her father and, along with her siblings, spent every weekend with him.
“I can’t imagine how many people were run over by bus drivers and driven on,” he says. “I’m sure there are homeless people who have been beaten and no one has claimed their bodies. You have no voice.”
He is aware that his famous surname is a powerful tool. “I’m not an idiot. I know why I’m attracting press attention. It’s for my father. But I can’t imagine all the other people who don’t have a voice.”
Shawna hopes there is someone who can provide information.
Meanwhile, LA Metro said yes in a statement Page Six: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dylan Lupia’s family at this difficult time. We continue to work to enforce the law and our in-house team is investigating this tragic accident and determining exactly what happened.” They also asked for the public’s help in providing any information they might have about this accident.
