'Tosh.0' Production Assistant Mistakenly Shot & Killed by LA Sheriff Deptuty

A production assistant from the Comedy Central series Tosh.0 was mistakenly shot and killed by a member of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The staffer, whose name was John Winkler, was mistaken for a stabbing subject and was fatally shot after deputies responded to an “assault with a deadly weapon, man with a knife call at an apartment complex in West Hollywood on Monday night,” according to the Sheriff’s Department (via The Wrap).

Deputies were directed to an apartment where they were told that the suspect was a thin white male who was wearing a black shirt. When they arrived at the apartment, the door opened and a man lunged out with John following closely behind. He met the description of the suspect so three deputies fired their weapons at him. It was then that they heard more commotion coming from the apartment and the real suspect was seen attacking another victim.

We send out thoughts and condolences to John‘s family during this difficult time.

Peaches Geldof Dead - British Model Dies at 25

Peaches Geldof has died at the young age of 25, according to BBC News.

Police were called to a home near Wrotham, Kent in England on Monday afternoon (April 7) following the report of concern for the welfare of a woman, who was later pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulence Service.

“At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden,” the Kent Police said a statement.

Peaches was the daughter of Irish singer-songwriter Bob Geldof and the late British television presenter Paula Yates. She made her modeling debut when she was 18 during London Fashion Week and she later signed as the face of Miss Ultimo in 2009 with a six figure deal. She was dropped from that brand though a year later when nude pictures surfaced and there were allegations of drug use, which she denied.

Peaches is survived by her husband Thomas Cohen and their two sons – Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months.

We send out our thoughts and condolences to Peaches‘ loved ones during this difficult time.
