By now, everyone knows that Prince died. This is terribly sad, but this is not what really got to me.
On Thursday night, Michelle McNamara died.
Michelle Eileen McNamara was a true crime writer, creator of the True Crime Diary website, and wife to the comedian Patton Oswalt. She died in her sleep. She was only 46 years old. She left behind her husband and their seven-year-old daughter Alice.
