Adrienne Shelly's "Waitress"



Recent events brought to mind the talented Adrienne Shelly..

Adrienne Shelly (June 24, 1966 November 1, 2006), was an American actress, director and screenwriter. She became known for roles in independent films such as 1989's The Unbelievable Truth. In late 2006 Shelly was the married mother of an infant daughter and was waiting to see if her film Waitress, would be accepted for the Sundance festival. On November 1, 2006, Shelly was found dead, hanging in the shower of her Greenwich Village work studio apartment. The initial examination of the scene did not reveal any suspicious circumstances, and police apparently believed it to be a suicide...

There may be a parallel to the Kathryn Steinle case who was allegedly killed by an illegal immigrant. A tragedy which is being exploited by the despicable Donald Trump.

Also the tragic case of Sandra Bland who died in a Texas jail cell. As with the Adrienne Shelly case it appears that a hanging was staged to make it look like suicide.

1. The Ostroy Report

BTW I became familiar with Adrienne Shelly years ago through one my favorite blogs back at that time -- the Ostroy Report -- Andy Ostroy was Adrienne Shelly's husband. You can follow him on twitter.

Daily Kos has more on the Sandra Bland story.

3. I thought I read a neighbor killed her

They had had some kind of dispute. I wonder what actually happened.

I was so sad to hear she had died and never saw the release of her film. It's one of my very favorites. I recommend it to everyone.

Those two recent deaths are just SO TRAGIC. Sandy Bland--wtf is up with all these cops???!!! There should absolutely be another fed investigation.
