Middle of the day?
In the New York papers, where we’re awake, the Post and the Daily News acknowledge in their headlines that Burrous was found dead at a motel from a possible drug overdose. A “male friend” called in that someone was unresponsive.
Huh? What the heck was Chris Burrous doing at a Days Inn Motel in Glendale (a suburb, and far from his office at KTLA) in the middle of the afternoon? Who was the male friend? And why isn’t the LA media questioning the overdose? Did Burrous have a drug problem?
Burrous was also far from his own home, in leafy Northridge. His 1,660 ranch house was bought in 2012 for $370,000. It was a far cry from the $100 rooms at the Days Inn. Source
