While I can't in good conscience truly mourn a child molester, he was a true icon and made some amazing music.

TMZ reported it first, and it's blocked at work.  But go there, it's on the homepage.

Well, celebrities usually die in sets of three.  Who's next?

We still have 6 more hours (9 on the west coast) to make them all in the same day.

Ed McMahon started this three trend I'd say.  Hopefully we're done.

TMZ seems to be the only source reporting that he's dead. But they usually are right.

Find it odd / compelling / creepy that they have a variation of the word "dead" 3 times in that URL.

Also, here's a strange comment left on that site:

"rest in peace my gerni

holla from san diego.

japanese number one"

Japanese number one WHAT??

Jesus, I go out of state for a week, and this is what happens? 

Can't I leave you people alone for a second?!

Big fan of his music, but not of the person.  RIP.

Now, Headline News says that the hospital is saying he's in a coma.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting he's dead.  They were initially saying that he was in a coma.  They've only just changed the story.
