Popcorn Sutton Died Today
I just got word that Popcorn is dead. Information is scant, but apparently, he was out on bail and when he received some kind of legal document instructing him to return to prison, he killed himself. To tell you the truth, this took me completely by surprise. Given the support he was receiving, I thought he was winning. News keeps trickling in. Neal Hutcheson, who knew Popcorn well (Neal made the film, "The Last One"), has just emailed me that Popcorn hooked up a hose to his Jeep and "went for one last ride." He had been scheduled to return to prison this Friday.
