Rest in Peace Paul Walker

I have a theory. It's always sadder when beautiful people in the story die. Today we test the theory with the real life passing of 40 year old actor, Paul Walker.

Walker passed away today in a car accident. He was the passenger in a car that hit a pole and was engulfed in flames. He and the driver of the car were killed.

Walker had the most fame for his starring role in the Fast and the Furious franchise and was a supporting role heartthrob of the late 90s in movies such as Varsity Blues, She's All That and Pleasantville.

Walker had a 15 year old daughter Meadow. 

Based on my reaction to Walker's passing, I'd say my theory is correct.

UPDATE: The driver of the vehicle was reportedly Roger Rodas, the CEO of Always Evolving automotive company. Rodas was a former race car driver.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department released a statement which stated, "When they arrived, deputies found the vehicle engulfed in flames. The Los Angeles County Fire Department responded, extinguished the fire and subsequently located two victims inside the vehicle. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene...The cause of the collision is under investigation by traffic investigators with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department...The Office of the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner will determine the identities and the cause of death of the victims."

They were in Rodas' 2005 Porsche Carrera GT when control was lost and they struck a tree.
