This Day in Death

9.26.12: “Sons of Anarchy” Actor Johnny Lewis – DEAD! And a Murderer. This… This is Gonna be Rough.

 I felt pretty weird about putting a picture of a murderer up here, so instead here’s the cover of the 1994 Jake Busey/Carla Gugino vehicle Motorcycle Gang. “Let’s capitalize *all* of the words to let people know what a good film it is!” someone must’ve said.

I haven’t watched Sons of Anarchy. It seems like a solid show, but I just can’t take motorcycle gangs seriously since being exposed to that walrus-looking guy from American Chopper. That guy looks like a flesh sack filled with ground beef. Sorry, but if the prospect of bearing witness to both Ron Perlman’s killer caveman brow and Katey Sagal’s shockingly graceful aging in the same show can’t make motorcycles cool again then nothing’s gonna get me on board. But I’m glad you people are enjoying yourselves.

Unfortunately, like sending crudely-drawn nude portraits of Turanga Leela to Katey Sagal’s house, something that was intended to be thoughtful and artistic took an ugly and special investigationy twist on Wednesday when Johnny Lewis, who played Half-Sack in SOA, up and murdered an elderly woman before accidentally killing himself.

Lewis was renting a room from Davis, who owned a sprawling hillside home that she advertised as a “villa” for actors and writers. On Wednesday morning the troubled actor smashed into Davis’ living quarters, ransacking furniture and bludgeoning the elderly woman to death, police said. She was also strangled and her cat dismembered.

Lewis then attacked a neighbor and a house painter — bashing them with a two-by-four and a paint roller — before climbing to the roof and falling to his death.

Look, I’m not gonna try to make any kind of statement about anything here. This whole mess is extremely unpleasant and you shouldn’t be turning to some dumbass blogger to make sense of these kinds of things in the first place. Really, we can only be certain of one thing right now: I would still very much like to engage in activities of a sexual nature with Katey Sagal. That’s sorta a major through-line of this whole post and I didn’t want it to get lost in the shuffle.
