I remember when this happened. The Juarez people allowed news photogs to go into the morgue and take pics and video of the dead actor.

Sad. Did not know thanks for the info.


Man. This guy was great. The epitome of cool at that time (he's still cool, actually). Just picked up a Steve McQueen four-pack of DVD's and HE'S THE MAN, in my opinion.
