Trevor Reed’s Release Leads to Questions About Brittney Griner

As basketball star Brittney Griner continues to be detained in Russia, the release of another imprisoned American has led to questions about how the federal government is responding to her case.

According to NBC News, on Wednesday, former U.S. Marine Trevor Reed was released by Russia during a prisoner exchange for convicted Russian drug trafficker Konstantin Yaroshenko, who was incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn. While many on the internet were happy for Reed, there were also questions about why Griner was still being detained.

Brittney’s wife, Cherelle Griner, expressed her love and happiness for the Reed family on Instagram.

“As I do everything in my power to get BG home my heart is overflowing with joy for The Reed Family. I do not personally know them, but I do know the pain of having your loved one detained in a foreign country,” Cherelle wrote. “That level of pain is constant and can only be remediated by a safe return home. For the Reed family, that day is today. Welcome Home Trevor, sending love to you and your family on this special day.”
