CNN.com has said that detectives of the Los Angeles Police Department Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force have served a warrant to search Gene Simmons’ home on Thursday (August 20). The police said in a statement “No one in the Simmons family is a suspect in this investigation,” although no other information has been given by the authorities but they have requested that Simmons and his family do not discuss the investigation publicly so as to not compromise it.
A representative for the Kiss bassist/vocalist said that the police went to the Simmons household to discuss a “crime that may have occurred on their property last year while Simmons was away on tour with KISS. Neither Mr. Simmons nor any member of his family is a person of interest in the investigation and they are cooperating fully with the investigation”. Gene Simmons’ wife Shannon said on her Facebook page “OMG this is one crazy day update: all of our iPhones iPads and computers are cleared. Now the real investigation can start !” She then posted on Twitter “Thanks for your support. We couldn’t be more horrified that someone used our residence for such heinous crimes. Law enforcement is on it”.
