There's alot of suicides of famous people by hanging lately. Are they sure the Quaids aren't right about someone targeting celebs? :P

Did we really need to know this, TMZ? Sheesh. You let us know this pointless information in the same breath that you tell us how many children he had? Have some respect and dignity once in a while, please.
