Brian O'Shea/Lasse Burholt Facebook communication September 2013.

Lasse Burholt was in contact with Brian O'Shea 3 times in 2013; once in August and twice in September 2013 about facts in The Maria O'Shea/Burholt crash near Lendum in July 2013.

Brian never responded to Lasse Burholt - and Brian blocked Lasse on Facebook, which meant they were not able to connect thru FB messenger and not see eachothers FB updates.

This is the message Lasse wrote to Brian (Sept. 2013):

Brian, you'll have to get Maria to translate the following (Copy of Aug. 16th FB Update) as of right now I am out of energy defending myself every single time whatever media writes about the tragic accident.

However, before posting the response that was given two weeks ago, I have to say that:

Yes, perhaps I should have tried to connect with you and/or Maria.

When I was at the hospital I tried to locate/tried to find out who Maria was since I knew we grew up in the same area - or at least have mutual friends.

At the time I did not know your name - so I tried to find Maria on Facebook - and used Google to find something. No luck.

When your children was buried few days after the accident me and my wife talked about how we should react - we did talk about going to the funeral - but we came to the conclusion that it was not a good idea.

I did not contact the media - however they posted my initial Facebook update on the July 17th or 18th (cannot remember) as if I was talking to them.

That was not the case.

But then the days went by - days became weeks - then all of sudden I came about your Facebook updates where you were blaming me for lying about the speed - and I thought: Wow! where did THAT come from!

Then in a blink of an eye I faced 4 days of media massacre - two full frontpages within 4 days in the printed media - one of them was a fullblown attack on me. A swarm of online media did updates continously for days - and I received several threats thru FB, sms, email. And I has harassed like crazy (had to erase between 70-80 direct harassments on FB).

Since I knew that I have friends who both know Maria's parents - and I friends that know some of your friends in Denmark (among them the Lennart-couple that Maria was going to see that horricfic day) - I assumed that my concerns for you and Maria would reach you thru - and of course the fact that I was driving more than 80 km/h would reach you as well.

The following is the official statement I posted on Facebook during the media storm - which I knew the media would pick up - and they did. The FB post was on almost every single online newspaper nationwide, as well as several printed:

(You can find the original on my FB wall - written friday morning, Aug 16th at 3.00am):

Have Maria Translate this for you (my message for you will continue beneath):

"Både Onsdag og Torsdag har jeg fyldt ganske meget i formiddagsbladene - men må sande at "ingen kommentarer" snarere har skabt en del spekulation - eller i hvert fald stillet min troværdighed i et lidt andet lys end tilfældet rent faktisk er. De mange krænkende og stærkt ubehagelige kommentarer, SMS og emails jeg har fået i lind strøm har ændret min opfattelse af hvad "ingen kommentarer" kan betyde...

Nu vil jeg slå fast, at jeg skam har kommunikeret ganske meget på Facebook omkring ulykken - det er blot sket i "privat beskeder" – gennem den kommunikation har der ikke har været lagt skjul på at hastigheden var over det tilladte. Der har heller ikke hersket nogen tvivl om at jeg føler med forældrene til de dræbte børn.

Jeg kan på ingen måde bilde hverken mig selv eller andre ind, at jeg kan sætte mig ind i hvor forfærdeligt det er at miste tre børn med et slag. Heller ikke selvom jeg har tre jævnaldrende børn... der går ikke en time på dagen uden jeg tænker på ulykken: jeg kan kun gisne om hvor forfærdeligt de forældre og den øvrige familie har det.

Der har ikke på noget tidspunkt været tvivl om, at jeg kørte mere end 80 km/t - der blev afgivet forklaring til politiet under min indlæggelse - vidner på ulykkesstedet har også bekræftet, at jeg til dem fortalte, at jeg kørte for stærkt, men jeg vidste ikke hvad hastigheden var på det tidspunkt - men mit gæt i min forklaring på sygehuset er meget tæt på den fart, som bil-inspektøren har regnet frem til via avanceret software.

Rundt i svinget inden ”Bredmosevej” ser jeg bilen - notere mig at den holder stille og venter på at dreje til venstre - men lige pludselig drejer den - jeg når at tænke rigtig mange ting - men har ingen mulighed for at reagere...

Da jeg kort tid efter kravler ud af min bil, går det op for mig at der var børn i bilen. Puha - det var grimt. Men det gik også op for mig at moren og den lille baby var i live.

Jeg er dybt ulykkelig på Maria og Brians vegne og håber så inderligt at de og deres lille dreng må komme bedst muligt igennem sorgen og livet må bringe dem alt det bedste.

Jeg kunne sagtens dele en masse fra timerne hos psykologen den sidste måneds tid - det er jo almindeligt at dele stort set alt på Facebook - men har som nævnt aldrig delt så private ting i det offentlige rum.

Flere har haft behov for at dunke mig oveni i hovedet - og fair nok for det - men jeg har så absolut intet behov for at dunke tilbage - med det in mente: lige pludselig står mine "fans" i en situation hvor der intet er at gøre end at tænke: "Det her kommer til at gøre meget ondt om lidt!" - og så afvente udfaldet...

Gennem den seneste måneds tid kunne jeg godt have skrevet stolpe op og stolpe ned om hvor super træls det er at være indblandet i så tragisk en ulykke. Uanset hvad - så kan ingen gøre noget om...

Det er hjerteskærende at læse farens beretning i BT - og jeg har fuld forståelse for al den vrede han må kæmpe med hver eneste time. Hver eneste dag. Aner ikke hvordan jeg selv vil reagere hvis jeg stod i hans del af scenariet...."

With regards to the challenge I have been given @ Independent.ie (www.independent.ie) by you, Brian:

I can not even begin to understand what Maria must be going thru - but as I wrote to you more than two weeks ago:

No matter what we do, what we say - or how we try to understand this awful and tragic thing:

It will not bring your three wonderfuld kids back. I am sorry.

The 16/08/13 Update was brought in several media, among them TV2•Nord, BT.dk, Ekstrabladet.dk and MetroXpress:

Chief Prosecutor Torben Kaufmann supports the fact that both Maria and Lasse was to blame for the accident that happened July 24th 2013.

The accident known as the "Sindal accident" outside Lendum, near Sindal, Denmark involved O'Shea (who made an illegal left turn) and Burholt (who came from the other direction speeding):

Google translate of Mr. Kaufmann's testimony: "But we can not deny that the woman was not allowed to turn left into the turn. She also has a share of the blame. He is inattentive, and he drives too fast, but the road is open in his case. She has also violated traffic laws, he says to tv2.dk".
