I read it over at and they tend to be on the ball with these things.

There wasn't much hope after they found his van near a severed arm, and apparently other body parts were found nearby...

His partner and son were told that the investigation had been changed from a missing persons to an apparent homicide on the 19th. And the news was released publically yesterday from the looks of it.

It's really sad, He effectively wrote large parts of the Thundercats mythos, but because it was all freelance he didn't get a penny in royalties. He was diagnosed with terminal bladder cancer in 2008 when he was living in his car. At which point Hero Initiative got him treatment, and put a roof over his head.

I've been following this story for a while now. Funilly enough I was explaining to my girlfriend about American health and was using his case as an example of what happend when their Health Insurance goes wrong. That night I read about him being missing.

The statement about his case becoming a homicide was released on the 27th.
