The public has harshly criticized Petgrave, who is suspected of homicide of Adam Johnson in connection with Johnson’s demise. Regarding Johnson’s “freak accident,” a guy was taken into custody by the South Yorkshire Police on Tuesday; however, he was subsequently freed on bond.
Several stories indicate that the suspect—whose skates are said to have caused Johnson’s neck injury—may be Petgrave, even though the authorities withheld his identity.
Kalpan stood up for Petgrave
Even though the cops deemed the occurrence to be an accident, Petgrave will probably live the rest of his life knowing that his actions caused another player to suffer fatal injuries.
Petgrave’s former general manager, Cary Kalpan, said, “Matt Petgrave will deal with this his entire life, and all indications are that it’s been devastating for him.”
“Manslaughter ideas are insane. Anyone who suggests [it’s not accident] is either not familiar with hockey, or was not present in the right scenario. What’s most striking is that the Nottingham players, many of whom were there and visible, came out in favor of Matt Petgrave and declared it to be a clear accident.”
