        Did you read anything in this article, other than the first comment? She was a well known, highly respected casting director. Unfortunately, she may have met someone and had a disagreement, which ended in her leaving. She crossed the street and was killed. She was absolutely beautiful, and had more friends than you will ever have in your lifetime. The service was held at the House of Blues, where approx. 400 friends and family attended. Channel 7 news was there.. What an ignorant person you are. She was a gracilous an beautiful person, not only outside, but to her core. Show some respect. We loved her very much.

      She was leaving a restaurant. Look at the other news articles about this incident.

    You should look at some other articles about Brigitte. She was loved so very much, by so many people. A show of 400 people at her service barely scratched the surface of the number of people who’s lives she touched. She was unique. Anyone of you commenting in a stupid way, would have been lucky to have known her.
