    Not everyone gets press when they died. Here are a couple of people that didn't get much media coverage. source: google, Imdb, bing
    ---

    Jared Nathan, a budding actor who as a teenager performed on the popular PBS children’s show “Zoom,” was killed in a car crash. He was 21.

    Nathan, who lived in Nashua, was an acting student at the Juilliard School in New York, friends said. He was home on Christmas break when a car he was riding in struck a tree early Thursday; he died at a hospital. Police charged the 19-year-old driver, Gabriel King, a friend of Nathan’s, with drunken driving.

    Nathan was 13 when he was selected for the 1999 revival of “Zoom,” a public TV show that first was seen in the 1970s. He was on for one season and would have been invited back had he not reached adolescence, executive producer Kate Taylor said.

    “Jared was just a wonderful, wonderful kid,” Taylor said Friday. “He was a quiet leader. He was also a really good team player.”

    yes. you are posting them basically one right after the other. you can leave the reply up while you are copying from whatever website you are taking this from.

    it seems to be post-whoring (and nobody likes a post whore...) at the moment because you could easily add them to the original.

    I think everyone knew about the two from Poltergeist. And Dominique Dunne wasn't "apparently" beaten to death by her former boyfriend, he was tried and convicted of strangling her.

    Awww I didn't know Yarnell had died.

    Judith Barsi, the voice of Duckie in The Land Before Time (Yep yep yep!) and the little girl in All Dogs Go To Heaven was murdered by her father. He killed her mom, too.
