A makeup artist nominated for an Oscar for her work in “Forrest Gump” shot her husband and killed herself in their home, authorities said Wednesday.
Hallie D’Amore, 64, and her 65-year-old photographer husband, Richard, were found dead Friday by co-workers who were concerned when she failed to show up for work, police Detective Mike DePasquale said.
There was no sign of a struggle or forced entry, and a gun was found, authorities said. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office has ruled the deaths a murder-suicide.
“They’d been having marital problems,” he said. “That’s what the neighbors and family were telling us – and maybe monetary problems that created stress.”
The couple recently celebrated their 22nd anniversary.
This kind of thing seems like it’s becoming more and more common. I’ll never understand the person that takes you out and then takes him/herself out right behind you. What is that, anyway? Some twisted game of “first one to the other side wins“?
And she did this after 22 years of marriage. You’d think they’d have worked the kinks out after all that time. I guess this was unkinkable, so she worked it out herself.

>kinda sad. sadder when the murderer also kills the kids too.(;-P….whaddya gonna do?
>I've always thought the killer should "get to the good part" and kill themselves and spare the others.I am sure they would have left an indication but in this instance I originally wondered if it was a twisted suicide pact and she was the one with balls enough to carry it out. One will never know.P.S. The picture of the pussy at gunpoint (still stuck on yesterday's post) is priceless.
>"Run Richard! Run!"
>My dumb ex boyfriend did this early this year. He killed his girlfriend/baby mama, and then told her daughter to go call the police, went in the other room and kissed his son on last time and then shot his fool ass in the head. Everyone was crying at the funeral…I don't know why. I went over to his mother who thought he was the best damn thing since sliced bread and told her to stop fucking crying…the fool should have just killed himself and left that woman the hell alone. I never liked that lady. I know I'm cruel. But I think people who takes someone else's life and then their own are cowards! Kill your damn self…fools.
>Damn, Dawnya. Sounds like you, literally, dodged a bullet by breaking up with him. Good for you for getting away from someone who would do something so heinous. The psychological damage to his daughter and son must be horrific.
