In a letter Beyoncé posted on her website, she said, “Three months have passed — and the LMPD’s investigations have created more questions than answers.”
“Their incident report states that Ms. Taylor suffered no injuries — yet we know she was shot at least eight times.”
“The LMPD officers claim they announced themselves before forcing their way into Ms. Taylor’s apartment — but her boyfriend who was with her, as well as several neighbors, all say that this is untrue.”

She continued, “Three months have passed — and zero arrests have been made, and no officers have been fired.”
“The LMPD’s investigation was turned over to your office, and yet all of the officers involved in the shooting remain employed by the LMPD. Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Officers Myles Cosgrove and Brett Hankison must be held accountable for their actions.”

She then added, “Don’t let this case fall into the pattern of no action after a terrible tragedy. With every death of a Black person at the hands of the police, there are two real tragedies: the death itself, and the inaction and delays that follow it.”
“This is your chance to end that pattern. Take swift and decisive action in charging the officers. The next months cannot look like the last three.”
