The entertainment world was shaken to its core by the news of the tragic death of ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise star Paul Walker over the weekend.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says excessive speed was a factor in the death of Walker, 40, and his financial adviser, Roger Rodas, 38.
Rodas was at the wheel of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT when it hit a light pole and wrapped itself around a tree near the site of a fundraiser that Walker attended on Saturday in Valencia, CA.
Emergency responders found the mens’ bodies nearly incinerated inside the mangled wreckage of the half million dollar sports car.
Walker’s death was a freakish footnote to the underground racing movie franchise that made him a household name.

The 60-year-old heart surgeon was released from a California prison 3 weeks ago. He immediately began giving interviews — in exchange for substantial sums of cash because he’s broke.
In an interview with The Daily Mail, Murray described a very simple procedure performed by doctors and nurses in hospitals and clinics every day.

A Michigan man has been charged with second degree murder in the shooting death of 19-year-old Renisha McBride.
Theodore Paul Wafer, 54, also known as Ted, was taken into custody today, The Detroit News reports.
Wafer claims he shot McBride in the face in “self defense” when she knocked on his door seeking help after a car crash on Nov. 2. McBride’s family was notified of her death on Nov. 4. Police initially said her body was “dumped” in the Detroit suburb.
Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced the arrest today during a press conference in Detroit.
“We obviously do not feel that the evidence in this case reveals that the defendant acted in lawful self defense,” Worthy said.
Renisha McBride’s killer waited until her body was cold before calling 911 to report the shooting, according to The Detroit News.
Seeking help after wrecking her car, 19-year-old McBride knocked on the door of a home in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn Heights last Sunday. Instead of assisting her, the homeowner (identified by McBride supporters as Ted Wafer) opened the door and shot McBride in the face with a single shotgun blast.
McBride is black. Ted Wafer is white.
