Tragic.

According to friends, Menke had gone hiking in the morning with her dog and then failed to come home. Search dogs, and LAPD helicopter, and numerous officers searched for hours in Griffith Park to find her. Her dog was found alive. Menke’s body was found at the bottom of a ravine, according to sources.

Our thoughts go out to her family and friends. So sad.

    NO!

    Quentin loved her, he had his actors say "Hi Sally!" at the end of takes as a show of appreciation for all her hard work. That's so sad, she was so saavy and engaged in all of Quentin's pictures, the first real editor that caught my eye for sure. This is a horrible, horrible world sometimes.

    A lot of women have heart disease and don't even know it. I had triple heart bypass and my cholesterol, blood pressure, weight & body size were perfect until I all of a sudden had serious angina pains; I was give an angiogram and there it was 3 100% blocked heart arteries. the only things that saved my life were the little arteries that grew because of the blockage and kept a little blood flowing, but not enough. I'm fine and thriving now. WOMEN WAKE UP & QUIT SMOKING TOO!

    Everyone who knew Sally was better for it. She was an incredible editor, but anyone who knew her could tell you, she was an even better person.
