Hunter S. Thompson, writer, committed suicide. I think it was a question of "when" not "if". See Bill Murray play him in "Where The Buffalo Roam" with unique soundtrack including unusual work from Neil Young.

Sandra Dee, movie star, singer and former wife of Bobby Darin died at age 63.

John Raitt, actor, starred in Carousel and was father of Bonnie Raitt.
