Why is the family not requesting a additional autopsy??? Now they are going to let her just cremate him so all the evidence will be gone. Someone should really look into what the doctors and all the test that were done on his head to make sure it wasnt caused from somme kind of trama not just a fall b/c that girl is guilty as all sin.

Can the executor stop profit being made from the hospital pics? It would seem that since Gary was a celeb, any photo rights would belong to the estate. She may have had POA for healthcare, but that wouldn't include photo ops when he was unable to give permission.

I really think the cause of his death should be determined before this horrid-skankassed-b*tch gets away with murder. I just know Gary is in a better place now, too bad he had to die to get there. RIP

#11 Mat has a REALLY good point.



And why is everyone screaming, "Shannon's getting away with murder!" and "And Now she can't get an autopsy!" She's not in control, people. She's not his wife. She's not the executer. Is there any record that Dion's close with her? If the estate gets wants an autopsy, they'll get one, but I think at this point, there's probably not a lot of money to do the embalm/casket/burial plot route.



And bright side: Shannon won't get the ashes. No pictures sold with "tears" in her eye looking at the urn.

#13: Because ppl cant read lol! The story clearly states Dion Mial, Gary's former manager and executor of the actor's estate is the one requesting a cremation not Shannon. Maybe his will states that he wanted to be cremated..

Thank you Sandy for pointing that out. This is not Shannon's idea. It's the cheapest way and I am sure the estate has no money. Now if Shannon would like to step in and give some of her profits from her photo op to give Gary a proper burial then that would be nice. I'm not holding my breath.
