Sad


Former Saturday Night Live player Charles Rocket, who gained notoriety for once letting an F-bomb slip on live TV, committed suicide earlier this month, officials said Monday.

The actor and comedian, 56, was discovered Oct. 7 in a field near his home in Canterbury, Connecticut, with his throat slashed. On Monday, the Connecticut medical examiner's office announced its finding that the injury was self-inflicted.

"An investigation determined there was no criminal aspect to this case," State Police Sergeant J. Paul Vance said. Rocket, whose real name was Charles Claverie, was a cast member on SNL during the low-rated 1980-81 season, following the departures of the show's remaining original players: John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, Laraine Newman, Garrett Morris and Bill Murray.

You Said

This is a very bizarre story. He was one of those actors whose name I never knew, but always went, "ooooh, him," when he'd be in a movie or something.

Sad, indeed.

Who kills themselves by slashing their own throat? That is just weird.
