Sal Mineo Murder 1976 Sal Mineo had an up-and-down acting career. His chief fame remains from playing opposite James Dean as a 17-year-old in Rebel Without A Cause (1956). By the 1960s Mineo could no longer be cast in youthful roles, and he was deemed wrong for adult lead roles. However, by 1976, Mineo's career had begun to turn around. Playing the role of a gay burglar in a San Francisco run of the stage comedy 'P.S. Your Cat Is Dead,' he received substantial publicity from many positive reviews and moved on to Los Angeles with the play. Arriving home after a rehearsal on February 12, 1976, Mineo was stabbed to death in the alley behind his West Hollywood apartment building. He was stabbed just once, but the blade struck his heart leading to immediate and massive internal bleeding. For years Mineo's murder was unsolved. However, a pizza deliveryman, Lionel Ray Williams, was sentenced to 57 years in prison for killing Mineo and committing 10 robberies in the same vicinity. Although there was considerable confusion relating to what witnesses had seen in the darkness the night Mineo was murdered, it was later revealed that prison guards reportedly overheard Williams admitting to the crime. Williams claimed he had no idea who Mineo was. Williams was paroled in the early 1990s, but was soon jailed again for criminal activity. Many of Mineo's friends believed that Williams was not the murderer, especially since a blond white man was seen running from the incident.

Timely Death of Bunny Ryan 1979 Elizabeth (Bunny) Ryan was an American tennis star who specialized in doubles. Shown here in a 1923 photo, Ryan won a combined total of 19 women's doubles and mixed doubles titles at Wimbledon from 1914 through 1934. She held the record for most Wimbledon titles until 1979. That year, Billie Jean King was attempting to win her 20th title. King was paired with Martina Navratilova in the women's doubles--and Navratilova was almost unbeatable at that time. King's 20th title was virtually assured--and this did not please 87-year-old Elizabeth Ryan one bit. Ryan constantly snubbed King whenever King tried to approach her. 'She [King] is trying to steal my record,' Ryan told friends. When NBC's Bud Collins tried to arrange an interview with King and Ryan together, Ryan staunchly refused. King and Navratilova did win the 1979 Wimbledon women's doubles title on July 7--but Ryan was not around to see it. It what can only be described as a timely death, Ryan collapsed on the Wimbledon grounds the day before and died.

New Zealand Judge Orders Name Change For Girl You can't make this stuff up... From July 2008: A judge in New Zealand, fed up with parents bestowing bizarre names on their offspring, has given a girl named Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii the chance to change hers. Judge Rob Murfitt has ruled that the girl, 9, become a ward of the court so her name can be changed. The girl was involved in a custody battle between her separated parents. In his ruling made public Thursday, Murfitt expressed concern at the 'very poor judgment' shown by the parents in selecting the moniker. 'It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap, unnecessarily,' said Murfitt. The court heard that the girl was so embarrassed by her name that she never even told her friends. Instead, she told people to call her K, her lawyer told the family court in the port city of New Plymouth, located on the west coast of the North Island. The ruling was made in February 2008, but became public five months later when it was published in law reports. The girl's new name will not be made public in order to protect her identity. In his ruling, Murfitt cited a list of strange names given to children in New Zealand. He said names blocked by registration officials included Yeah Detroit, Keenan Got Lucy, Twisty Poi, Fish and Chips, and Sex Fruit. However, Number 16 Bus Shelter and Violence were allowed. New Zealand law does not allow names that would cause offence to a reasonable person, among other conditions, said Brian Clarke, the registrar general of births, deaths and marriages. Clarke said officials usually talk to parents who propose unusual names to convince them of the potential embarrassment for the child.
