DJ Laz’s Facebook & Twitter accounts have been deleted / closed down

DJ Laz, a well known Miami, Florida area radio personality was operating a boat promoting Voli Spirits when it was involved in a fatal boat propeller accident on Sunday 4 May 2014.

The next day, Monday 5 May he posted a message on Facebook and Tweeted condolences to the deceased man’s family and said he was fully cooperating with the authorities.

Later the same day his Twitter account vanished from the Internet.

The next day (May 6th) his Facebook account vanished from the Internet.

We assume this attempted shutdown of his social media presence is due to him anticipating litigation being filed against him in the boat propeller accident (a suit was shortly later filed against him).

In response to the significant role Social Media is playing in this accident, and others, we created a post titled: Legal Aspects of Social Media and Boat Propeller Accidents: the DJ Laz example.
