Russian film director Bakhtyar Khudojnazarov, aged only 49.
 
By using Scrabble scoring to add up the letters in his name, he comes up with a score greater than his age at death; 60 points.   I doubt there are many other people mentioned on this forum to whom the Scrabble deficit would apply.


I hope you scored that second K a zero and not a 5, as it would require the use of a blank.

Jean Germain, French politician accused of corruption, appears to have committed suicide pre-trial. http://www.bbc.co.uk...europe-32202429

 
ALL the main news sources are reporting it as suicide and Wiki has it as death by firearm, all ahead of a trial about his - alleged - profiteering from a marriage scam.
 
Our kinda guy, then. Was anyone hereabouts prescient enough to have snagged him in a pool?

Barrymore doesn't post anymore as far as I know....
