Tonite is the second and last night for the Matt Dillon double bill at the New Beverly.
As Steve Huff wrote, what really happened was “like the sort of news story destined to be re-fashioned into fiction on the long-running crime drama, Law & Order.”
At first, this appeared to be a suicide. Huff, a former Metblogger, now a crimeblogger, had some doubts to these initial reports, as did Shelly’s husband and father of their child, Andy Ostroy.
In fact, soon after Huff’s initial post on the subject, and less than a week after Shelly was found dead, an arrest had been made. Diego Pillco, a 19 year old costruction worker, is now accused of punching Shelly after she complained he was being too loud while doing work on the floor where her office was. Police also allege that he then proceeded to hang her from a shower curtain in an effort to stage a suicide, complete with a forged suicide note.
