Actor Wyatt Knight is seeing an increase in image and photos searches after the Porky’s trilogy star committed suicide. The 56-year-old actor was best known for his role as Tommy Turner. Knight was found dead in Hawaii and indications are that the star comitted suicide.
Knight had suffered from non-hodgkins lymphoma in 2003 and had a bone marrow transplant during stage 4 of the disease. The recovery process from such an ordeal is strenous and may have contributed to the actor’s sad and far too early death.
Sources have cited statements from Knight’s wife, Silvina, discussing the issue: “He was tired of the pain, and after much contemplation, chose to end his life in a beautiful and a serene place.”
Thoughts and prayers to Knight’s family and friends during this time.
