You might be too young to remember, but Jon Erik Hexum died over 20 years ago in a freak prop gun accident. I can’t remember the tv show he was filming, but during a break he took the prop gun and held it to his head. Though the gun only contained blanks, at close range as it was, some of the fragments from the blank were fired into his skull and brain. He died from the injuries. I was so devastated because he was one of the first hairy bodied men I fell in love with in my early years of my gaydom.
