Mobster Mickey Spillane's

Son Falls to His Death

7/11/2010 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0710_bobby_spillane_bn_gettyBobby Spillane -- a small-time actor and son of legendary mobster Mickey Spillane -- fell out of a sixth floor window in Manhattan and died today. He was 45.

Foul play is not suspected.

Spillane had guest roles on "Law & Order" and "Rescue Me" and wrote an Off-Broadway play called "All Dolled Up" about a real-life cross-dressing gangster.

His father, Mickey, was gunned down in 1977.

I went to google and put in MICKEY SPILLANES SON/ACCIDENT and news articles came right up. Apparently he leaned against a screen of an open window and went through. His arm was in a sling and maybe that had something to do with him not being able to catch his balance. And am I the only person that watches true crime shows? I knew exactly who Mickey Spillane was - and his son looks JUST freaking like him. Mickey's life is kind of interesting if you want to google it.... To top it off, I never knew there was any other Mickey Spillane than the mobster - he wasn't Gotti, but he was pretty famous

Author Mickey Spillane was not a mobster, and died quietly of cancer.
You should do your research before you publish your story.
Childish journalism.

How about being responsible and adding perhaps that it was a tragic accident and not insinuating it was anything else??

He leaned on a screened window with one arm in a sling, the screen gave way and he fell.

Tragic.

Aww, that's very sad. Losing a child must be the most terrible thing ever. Nobody deserves that. This is so terrible. I don't understand the comment about "karma."What did he do that could be so bad to deserve such a thing?My condolences to the family of this child.

Mickey Spillane, was a U.S. author of crime novels, many featuring his signature detective character, Mike Hammer. He was NOT a mobster! Me thinks you guys blew it this time!
