The home of Gene Simmons was searched by a task force investigating crimes against children after they appeared at his door with a search warrant. The detectives involved in this case were adamant to pass along that Gene Simmons and his family are not suspects in any crime.
Reports indicate that the task force was at the Simmons home as part of a child porn investigation, but again, the Simmons family was not part of this investigation. A tweet from Shannon suggested that it was someone who used their residence that the police were investigating.
According to MSN News on August 21, while law enforcement isn’t looking at any of the Simmons family members, they are keeping the name of who they are investigation under wraps. Detectives did say that Gene Simmons and his family members are being “extremely cooperative.”
The Simmons family members were more than accommodating to the authorities who entered their home with a search warrant. Anyone who had followed this family’s reality show, would not expect anything less from Gene, Shannon and their kids, who have a gracious way about them.
While police did not give any indication to the public of what they were looking for, tweets from the family did offer up clues. Shannon Simmons, Gene’s wife, tweeted a big thank-you to the fans for their support over this search. She wrote:
“Thanks for your support. We couldn’t be more horrified that someone used our residence for such heinous crimes. Law enforcement is on it.”
Seattle PI reports that the Simmons home was raided as “part of a child porn investigation.” Shannon’s tweet indicated that someone used their “residence” to commit a “heinous crime,” but that someone is not identified to the public.
It is not known if Gene and Shannon know, or at least have some idea who would do this in their home. Their daughter Sophie also tweeted something very similar to what her mom passed along, thanking the fans for their kind words of support.
Fans of the Simmons got to see the inner workers of this very close-knit family when the reality show “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” was on the air. Gene and Shannon’s parenting strategy was among the best there is, both in and out of Hollywood.
They both seemed to have found that perfect middle ground of parenting and friendship with their kids, which is often a tough terrain for parents to navigate. The couple’s two kids, Nick and Sophie, grew-up in front of the camera during the seasons of the show. Fans saw a couple of terrific kids with a two great parents behind them, which is also the real-life version of his family!
