I didn't see him mentioned yet, and don't think anybody had him, but Nuon "Brother No. 2" Chea died on 8/4/19 at the age of 93. That was a hell of a lot older than most of his and Pol Pot's victims ever got to be. Referring to those who were murdered, he said "We only killed the bad people, not the good" and "We didn't kill many". "Not many" being about two million, or a quarter of the population of Cambodia.

Jim Leavelle, the Dallas detective who was escorting Lee Harvey Oswald when Jack Ruby shot him (he's the man on the left in that iconic photo), has died at age 99. Leavelle was also a survivor of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Baker, I believe that my total is incorrect. I should only have 122 points, but you show me at 142. I don't know if anyone else has any discrepancies.

Thanks for pointing our my error. I don't often get folks reducing their score! At least it wasn't too far in rank.

I almost missed this one:

Jeff Blackshear, who anchored the Ravens’ right guard position for four seasons in the late 1990s, died Saturday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 50.

https://www.capitalgazette.com/sport...outputType=amp

RIP.


And 50 points for me.

I'll make my comments over the themed side since I only got out-done over there.

But in case anyone wondered ----- I do like the "no duplication" rule.

I'm scared to check my list further now, I just found that:

https://metro.co.uk/2019/08/21/david...4/?ito=cbshare
Quote:
The DJ partner of David Guetta Fred Rister has died at the age of 58 following a battle with cancer. The producer played a part in dance bangers including The Black Eyed Peas’ I Gotta Feeling and won a Grammy for his musical efforts. Born in Dunkirk, France, Rister – real name Frédéric Riesterer – had collaborated with Guetta since the 00s, and co-wrote several big hits taking the Grammy for hit dance track When Love Takes Over.
That happened about 2 weeks ago, I think CAMJAY77 has him too. 42 more points for both.

Thanks for the correction. I think I did it in the MLB thread, too. NyQuil is a hell of a drug.

Country music singer Kylie Rae Harris was killed in a 3-car crash. She was 30.

ETA: on a depressing note, one of the firefighters who responded to the accident was shocked to learn that his 16-year old daughter was the other person who died in this accident.

Seeing the face I thought he could have been one of the people on my themed list but checking IMDB the only thing of his I am sure I saw was Sorority House Massacre.
