Our top story tonight, Martha Colt was found dead at her Long Island home this morning.
Trash gets thrown away sometimes. And, as in the case of Martha Colt, sometimes it gets tossed in the pool.
The actress was discovered floating face down.
She came to me last night. My door is always open for when the desperate get desperate.
Investigators say she appears to have been alone the night before and there were no signs of forced entry.
“What do you want?” I asked.
Colt began her long career with her role on the popular series, “Faust” but recently dropped off the pop culture radar after accusing the network of cheating her out of her contract.
“To be famous again,” she said. Her face was wet. She’d been crying.
Industry insiders claim she had been blackballed for publicizing her accusations.
“My associates can make that happen.”
The network as well as her family have refused to comment, however friends close to Colt say the once sought after actress has been feeling depressed as of late.
“Are you an agent?”
Colt, recently returned from rehab for her highly publicized drug addiction, retreated into her home and has been out of touch for days.
“I’m an agent of sorts.”
Police won’t say whether or not drugs were involved in the actress’s death but state at this point they are quote, “ruling nothing out.”
“Yeah, right. I’ll never see you again will I?”
Coming up after the break…
“Oh, just sign here and you and I will see each other again very soon.”
