Tributes are pouring in on social media after Anna's death. She had over million followers on Instagram, who stood by her throughout her journey as a “spinal cord injury fighter.” Back in December 2019, Anna made headlines after she met with a car accident that left her paralyzed with a spinal cord injury. Her ex-boyfriend, influencer Gaga Muhammad, was allegedly driving the car under the influence of alcohol while commuting from a party.

What happened to Gaga Muhammad?

Gaga Muhammad escaped the accident without any major injuries. However, Anna became paralyzed from the waist down after dislocating her cervical vertebrae. As per reports, after the incident, Muhammad neglected Anna even as she was overburdened with medical expenses. Anna had to start a crowdfunding page to pay her hospital bills.

Until the accident, Anna and Muhammad had been known as an influencer power couple among fans in Indonesia. The duo had been engaged in a legal battle after the tragedy. Muhammad has reportedly been in police custody since November this year after Anna registered a case of negligent driving against him. Laura’s family lawyer subpoenaed Gaga and demanded that he pay Rp (Indonesian rupiah) 12.6 billion (i.e. 8,75,866 US dollars) toward her medical bills. Gaga, however, ignored the subpoena. Laura's family subsequently helped prosecutors build a case against him. 

At present, Gaga is facing a drunk driving charge that carries a maximum punishment of 5 years in prison and a maximum Rp 10 million fine. On December 2, just a couple of weeks before her death, Laura had testified at the East Jakarta District Court.
