not sure if folks know this yet, but johnny lewis (halfsack) died last night. the sad irony of it happening two days after opie’s death is not lost on me. it was a tragic end for an extremely talented guy, who unfortunately had lost his way. i wish i could say that i was shocked by the events last night, but i was not. i am deeply sorry that an innocent life had to be thrown into his destructive path. yes, it’s day or mourning, but it’s also a day of awareness and gratitude. sadly, some of us carry the message by dying.
“Sons of Anarchy” creator Kurt Sutter • Reacting on Whosay to the death of actor Johnny Lewis, who starred in the first two seasons of Sutter’s show. Before Lewis died, he was suspected of killing an 81-year-old woman in Los Angeles, after which he fell to his death. Lewis had a series of legal troubles before his death, including a bar fight and an attempted burglary. A probation officer reportedly expressed grave concern for Lewis’ mental health months before his death, and suggested he had chemical dependencies. Lewis had been released from jail a week before his death. source
