SONS OF ANARCHY Star Johnny Lewis Dead In Apparent Murder-Suicide
Sons Of Anarchy star Johnny Lewis has come to a tragic end in an incident last night which has not only left the star dead but also the eighty one year old woman who was his landlord, with Lewis named a suspect in her death.

Authorities believe Lewis was under the influence of drugs when he argued with his landlady in their driveway, where she was found beaten to death. He then ran to the roof of the building from which he is believed to have fallen or jumped to his own demise. Sons Of Anarchy writer / producer Kurt Sutter tweeted this following news of the incident:

not sure if folks know this yet, but johnny lewis (halfsack) died last night. the sad irony of it happening two days after opie's death is not lost on me. it was a tragic end for an extremely talented guy, who unfortunately had lost his way. i wish i could say that i was shocked by the events last night, but i was not. i am deeply sorry that an innocent life had to be thrown into his destructive path. yes, it's day or mourning, but it's also a day of awareness and gratitude. sadly, some of us carry the message by dying.

Dude just compared a couple of real, tragic deaths with the death of a fictional character. Then he built a cautionary narrative around whole thing, turning an awful situation into a dramatic beat. I assume Kurt Sutter's in shock, but jeeze.

well put... I was thinking the same thing :/

To me the big talking point here is that Sutter WAS NOT SURPRISED this happened. What kind of guy do you have to be that beating an old woman to death doesn't surprise the people you work with?

I was wondering the same thing.
He couldn't just move?

The woman who lived in my house before me was raped, killed, and dismembered by a tenant she had just kicked out. So that didn't go so well, either...

Also, he blatantly posted a spoiler. I mean, jeez, man

Oh my God!

tragic news, especially that this innocent woman lost her life after evidentally many years of doing something right else she wouldn't have been in her 80's. but for kurt sutter to have compared this young man's life with the fictional death of opie is totally baffling. his line between real life & that of his show's characters somehow crossing over makes me think twice as to whether or not i'll continue watching SOA as i have from the beginning. just saying, maybe he needs a reality check of his own...careful, Katey!
