Patton Oswalt Reveals Late Wife Michelle McNamara May Have Accidentially Overdosed
The 47-year-old actor and comedian sadly discovered that she passed away in her sleep this past April, and there’s still no official cause of death.
“I have a feeling it might have been an overdose,” Patton told the NYT, citing that she took Xanax. “That’s what the paramedics there were saying while I was screaming and throwing up.”
He says that was the second worst day of his life.
“The worst is when I told my daughter the next day,” Patton said.
Now, he is determined to finishing his late wife’s work.
“We can finish the book, but it was tangential to the work, which was: She was going to solve this crime,” Patton said. “In comic-book terms, I was married to a great crime fighter.”
