Michael Mantenuto Has Died



Michael Mantenuto, best known for his role in Miracle died, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, a spokesperson for the King County Medical Examiner's office in Washington says. He was 35 years old.

His case is currently being investigated by the Des Moines, Washington, police.

Mantenuto had remained largely out of the spotlight after starring in the 2004 Disney film, in which he played fan-favorite Olympic hockey player Jack O'Callahan opposite Kurt Russell's Herb Brooks. In real life, Mantenuto played college hockey for the University of Maine. According to TMZ, he went on to enlist in the U.S. Army and join the Special Forces.

Mantenuto's other iMDB credits include the 2006 TV film "Dirtbags," alongside Melissa Joan Hart and Laura Bell Bundy, and the Matthew McConaughey-starring 2008 movie, "Surfer, Dude."

Gee, the NRA and Republican Party keep telling us more guns keep us safe. What happened?

Apparently there was not a good guy with a gun nearby to shoot him and prevent this

He's still very much supporting the NRA right now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEGtWl42ra8

I went through a really rough period in my life on March 10–11 this year. The next day, after I'd calmed down, I realised that if I were in America at the time, I wouldn't have been alive and here today to write this comment. My understanding is you can be mentally unstable and it's still THAT easy to obtain firearms in the US.

It's absurd that people pretend stuff like this isn't happening.

RIP (emphasis on the "peace", as someone with anxiety/depression, I mean really hope from the bottom of my heart that he's in peace now). ♥
