The woman who had her home destroyed by actress Anne Heche is identified

A Los Angeles woman lost an ‘entire lifetime of possessions’ after actress Anne Heche plowed into her car into her home causing a fire that nearly claimed both women’s lives.

A GoFundMe page that has been set up for Lynne Michele has raised close to $45,000 in a single day. According to that page, Michele, who is referred to as a ‘kind and generous person,’ ‘very narrowly escaped physical harm’ following the crash.

The fire that was caused by the crash took 59 firefighters more than an hour to extinguish. Heche was rushed to a local hospital where she was intubated and treated for burns. She is listed as being in stable condition.

The crowdfunding page says that Michele’s home was ‘immediately red-tagged.’ Just minutes before Heche careered into the nearly 70-year-old home, the ‘Donnie Brasco’ star was pictured after crashing into a garage on the same street.

Shortly before destroying Michele’s house, Heche’s blue Mini Cooper is shown on a doorbell camera speeding past a home along South Walgrove Avenue in the Mar Vista neighborhood around 90 miles per hour.

Mishele’s home is located at 1766 South Walgrove Avenue around 15 miles from Heche’s home in the Eastern Columbia Lofts building in the Broadway Theater District of Downtown Los Angeles.

The goal of the GoFundMe page is $100,000. The page was set up by her neighbors John and Jennifer Durand.

The blurb on the page reads: ‘Lynne lives with her beautiful pups Bree and Rueban, and tortoise Marley in the Mar Vista home that was destroyed this week by a car driving into the home at a high rate of speed, catching the house on fire .’

‘Even more distressing is that Lynne lost her entire lifetime of possessions, mementos, all equipment for her business including her laptop and iPad, all of her clothing and basic necessities, and all household items.

‘With firefighters’ help, she was able to pull a few damaged sentimental belongings from the wreckage. Everything else is gone.’

Mishele’s neighbor Lynne Bernstein told People Magazine that her friend was ‘extremely fortunate’ to survive. She added: ‘So were the dogs and her turtle.’

Bernstein said that Mishele was in a different section of the home to where the crash occurred.

She described her initial reaction to the crash saying: ‘I don’t think she got what was going on. She said, ‘What happened? What happened?”

Bernstein also said that Heche’s car went ‘almost all the way through’ the home and ‘almost immediately’ began to burst into flames.

According to her LinkedIn page, Michele is the founder of Creative Organization, a company that helps to organize ‘your home, your office and your life. We help you simplify everything!’

She describes herself as an ‘Effective organizing professional with expertise in approaching organizing issues with a creative outlook. An innovative organizer that has a proven track record with establishing successful systems for each individual client.’

Michele says on her LinkedIn page that she founded the company in 1993. Previously, she worked as a travel director at Citigroup and as a marketing associate for Sony Pictures.

The entrepreneur is a graduate of the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.

While on her Instagram page, Michele regularly posts self-help videos. A few days before the accident that destroyed her home, she posted a video titled: ‘Don’t leave a burden for your loved ones.’

In the video, she encouraged her followers not to leave things to loved ones after they die without asking them first if they want the items.

In 2015, one of Michele’s closest friends, JT Codd was murdered alongside his wife and their unborn child in Asheville, North Carolina, in what the local DA called one of the ‘most disturbing killings in Buncombe County history,’ CBS News reported at the time.

Codd was killed alongside his wife, Cristie Codd, who had appeared on the show ‘Food Network Star,’ by Robert Jason Owens. Owens killed the two when he accidentally hit them with his car as the trio attempted to remove it from a ditch.

Frightened at the prospect of going to prison, prosecutors said that Owens destroyed the couple’s bodies in a wood burning stove and then sold their possessions.

He was identified as a suspect by witnesses and admitted to the crime in 2017. Owens was charged to 60 years in prison for the crime.

Mishele, who regularly posts about missing Codd on her Facebook page, told People Magazine at the time of his death that the pair grew up together in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and later moved to California.

She said: ‘JT was an advocate for every underdog. He really took everybody under his wing who other people weren’t willing to give a second look to.’ Cristie Codd was five months pregnant at the time of her death.
