“Many of you have seen the reports of a homicide which occurred early this morning in the home I rent in Los Angeles. I only have a few details but it seems like it was the result of a break in. The victim was a dear friend of mine, who was staying at my place while I was away. I am heartbroken.

I am writing this from a plane en route to Los Angeles from New York, so I can be with my friends there, who are also devastated.

There’s so much to say but I’m at a loss for words so just love your people and I will have more to say when we know more about what happened.”
