I learned a lot today. First of all, apparently Dylan McDermott (who is so hot it makes me want to weep) is from Connecticut. Waterbury, to be specific. Also, he’s kind of gangster.

Apparently, his mother died when McDermott was on five years old. At the time, the cops ruled her shooting an accident, which–after you read the facts of the case– seems either super shady or like really bad police work. I

So let’s turn to the AP and Yahoo! to get the gist:

A reopened police investigation has concluded that actor Dylan McDermott’s mother was killed in 1967 by her now-dead gangster boyfriend.

Waterbury police reopened the investigation last year into Diane McDermott’s death after Dylan McDermott contacted them with questions, the Republican-American newspaper reported (http://bit.ly/KX4WBx ) Sunday and Monday as part of a two-part series.

Despite the gun having been put to the back of he head, and the police for some reason believed Sponza  when he claimed she’d shot herself. Also, the weapon he claimed she used didn’t match her injuries. And apparently, the evidence in this case has led to implicating Sponza in two other murders.

Thug life 4 real!

My friends know I’ve got a thing for thuggish Irish guys, especially ones with dark hair and blue eyes, but I also happen to have a special thing for McDermott because of his role as Leo Fish in one of my favorite movies of all times.

Who knew this handsome fellow with a curious accent lived such a rough life?
