Stephen Collins Suicide Reports Are False, LAPD Confirms

The LAPD paid a visit to actor Stephen Collins‘ home on Tuesday night (October 7) after there was a report of a single gunshot being heard inside.

The 67-year-old actor faced a difficult day after an audio tape was released in which he confesses to molesting young girls many years ago. He was later fired from the movie Ted 2, resigned from the SAG board and another charity, and 7th Heaven reruns were pulled off several networks.

Members of the media are camped outside of Stephen‘s home right now in California’s San Fernando Valley and someone reported a gunshot from inside the house. The LAPD responded, but said that there was no gunshot and that Stephen is “alive and well.” He is not at the home this evening though, according to TMZ.

“He’s not dead; he’s alive,” an LAPD spokesperson told People. “He was not at home at the time of the alleged incident, and there’s no evidence of any gun shot.”

    Why? He needs to answer for these horrible crimes. Maybe he should have left those little girls alone, hmmm?

    Stephen Collins deserves a fair hearing and fair investigation, even if you think this is a true confession.
    His wife should also be investigated for extortion and releasing this tape to the public.
    I think that outrage at Mr. Collins by the public is misplaced and hypocritical. Public policy literature shows that sexual abuse happens every day hundreds of time. The broader question should always be, how do we reduce this number without resorting to calling people like Mr. Collins (the alleged perpetrator) a monster, a pervert, etc? Because it’s just not helpful to demonize him.
    Why? Guess what. Studies show that sexual abuse and molestation happens mostly between family members like uncles, brothers, fathers, stepfathers, friends of family, etc., against girls. Based on what I’ve read about Mr. Collins, it seems like he may have victimized random girls. This would be rare.

    I don’t know what to say. I want to defend him but it’s impossible. I hope other pedos take notice to what happens when you abuse little kids. If you don’t want to be harrassed then don’t be a pedo.

    Collins is a sick creep who needs to burn in hell. He should have his Dickk chopped off and his body burnt alive.

    He didn’t rape anyone though. From what I heard and read 3 girls saw his privates, which yeah it’s gross but this was in 1970′s, he’s probably changed by now. Which is why he was in therapy and it sucks for him cos his wife is cashing out on this, she didn’t care about the victims, she leaked the recording for money.
    I saw way more disgusting things as a child, they’ll get over seeing a p3n1s.
    I do find the media overreaction to be good because it might stop other pedos from giving in to their sick desires, hopefully.

    @anotherview:

    as someone who experienced something simular as a child, i can tell you that having to touch an adult mens penis at age 11 can affect your whole life. maybe you should comment on how people probably cope with things, especially kids.

    For a long time I wondered why they never showed reruns of 7th Heaven. It was one of my favorite shows. Now I know why.
