Update: Porky's Star Death Ruled As Suicide

| Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad


So Sad!

We posted earlier that Wyatt Knight, the actor who played Tommy Turner in the Porky's movies, was found dead in Maui.

Now, Wyatt's wife Silvina Knight has confirmed the that his death was a suicide.

She says that after battling cancer radiation treatments "left him in both physical and emotional pain."

She explains that her husband planned the trip to Hawaii so he could die in somewhere beautiful.

"He was tired of the pain and after much contemplation, chose to end his life in a beautiful and a serene place. Wyatt was an incredibly talented, intelligent and loving person with an amazing spirit. He is free and at peace."

Wow. He finally beat cancer, but no longer had the will to live.

Truly heartbreaking!

    RIP! You can see Porky's on some Cable Channels almost everyday. May his family find peace in this time of need. He's in the arms of the angles.

    What do you mean "Wow. He finally beat cancer, but no longer had the will to live"?

    It seems to me that the reason he took his life is because he knew he was going to die and chose to do it in his own terms and not go through the agony of being eaten alive by the disease.

    Re: amandadixon420 – How do you know someone helped him? Lots of people do it on their own after making the choice to end the pain and suffering, even when their families know about it.

    Re: tspires24 – I don't agree that what he did was suicide that is a nasty word for what this man did. Euthanasia may not be the correct term but I personally do not feel suicide is either.

    I find the information about cancer politics that was explained in this well respected documentary about a doctor in Texas with a PROVEN non-toxic cancer treatment really interesting:
    They are sharing the movie FOR FREE to try to get the information out there. Big business has a lot more control over what you get to hear about on the nightly news than you might realize!

    yes cancer is now right up there with other diseases never used to be now they are admitting they are overdiagnosing people who basically dont have it..the chemo wipes em out more so than the cancer..
