John Hillerman has passed at the age of 84.
http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/09/entert...-84/index.html

He probably heard about the Magnum, P.I. remake.

Oops. Missed the prior posting.

I can't believe this happened nearly 5 months ago, but one of my picks, Dave Rosser, died, and I don't think it's been mentioned here.

http://variety.com/2017/music/news/d...st-1202481112/

I don't know if anyone else had him.

Saw a Facebook link that said that Suge Knight was stabbed to death in prison. Haven't seen anything reputable confirming that, however.

I can't believe after 5 years in this game and I'm still a virgin. I thought I had some "sure things" on my list but 11 1/2 months in and no cooperation....

I see part of your problem; we are 10 1/2 months in.

Me? I've been averaging a whopping .4 deaths per year. I could still win this year with a big New Years Eve rap blowout and mass extinction.

Count yourself lucky. I had my cherry popped a few months in, by the Iron Lady and have not scored since.

Keith Barron, prolific British actor, died aged 83. He's most famous for Brits from starring in a sitcom in the 80s called Duty Free, about a married couple going on their yearly holidays to Spain. But he has worked steadily forever.

Next year participants need to start thinking more about picking young celebrities who like their heroin and fentanyl. Here's one where you could have picked up a nice 79 points:
Lil Peep who just turned 21:

Anyone have Charles Manson this year? He seems pretty close to checking out.

He doesn't look like someone who has made very good life choices.

Surprisingly, only one: Nema98, who is waiting on first points of the year (and likely losing one's Death Pool Virginity to Charles Manson)

Rapper Lil Peep, an emerging voice on the hip hop scene and a YouTube star, has died at the age of 21. Born Gustav Ĺhr, the Long Island rapper and singer blended emo and hip hop for a distinctive singing and rapping style which often highlighted his drug use.

I've got Lil twist as an alternate, damn. 79 points down the drain my condolences to his family and agents.

I missed this one a few days ago. I doubt anyone had him. Ferdie Pacheco died at 89. He was Ali’s cornerman and for years it seemed like he was working every big fight. As a former boxing fan I remember him well first working the fights and then as a commentator.

No takers for Pacheco.

Just when I was thinking of addressing the Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi "issue", a news report surfaces saying that he is on the move.

I removed him from the current rankings. Recognizing that this changes the rankings at the top of the leaderboard, including myself, I am hoping he returns to the list real soon (extra apologies to 1b3bz18c9ed269201 and Ají de Gallina, for whom he was their lone pick this year.)

If anyone can provide a better solution, I am open, but it looks like this guy isn't dead yet.
