NEW YORK (AP) — Adrienne Shelly, an actress best known for her roles in the Hal Hartley films “Trust” and “The Unbelievable Truth,” was found dead in her office by her husband, her agent said Thursday.
Shelly was found about 6 p.m. Wednesday. Police said Thursday night that they are awaiting autopsy results before deciding whether to investigate the case as foul play.
An autopsy was performed Thursday, but the medical examiner’s office did not have a cause of death.
Friend of mine used to be Hal Hartley’s editor, so I met a number of people in that circle. Went out for drinks a few times with a bunch of them, including Adrienne, maybe twelve or thirteen years ago. Haven’t given them much thought in a long time, but I saw the headline on the CNN site, and had this sudden feeling it was her before I even clicked through to the obit.
