‘Law & Order’ actress Mary Mara dead at 61 after drowning in NY river
Mary Mara, an actress who starred on TV shows like “Law & Order,” “Ray Donovan” and “NYPD Blue,” died on Sunday, her manager confirmed to Page Six. She was 61.
New York State Police troopers responded to a call of a possible drowning a little after 8 a.m. local time on Sunday in the town of Cape Vincent where she lived, according to a police report obtained by The Post.
Once on the scene, police found her body – which they said showed no signs of foul play – in the water.
“Mary’s body was found this morning in her beloved St. Lawrence River,” her rep told Fox News Digital. “She drowned while swimming.”
However, an autopsy will still be performed at the Jefferson County Medical Examiner’s Office to determine an official cause of death.
Mara was reportedly staying at her sister’s summer home, which fronts the St. Lawrence River, when she decided to go for a swim.
She leaves behind an ex-husband and stepdaughter, her manager told us.
“Mary was one of the finest actresses I ever met,” the manager said. “I still remember seeing her onstage in 1992 in ‘Mad Forest’ off-Broadway. She was electric, funny and a true individual. Everyone loved her. She will be missed.”
Though Mara acted in over 20 movies, the small screen was her bread and butter.
She dominated the TV drama genre with roles on other popular shows like “Nash Bridges,” “ER,” “Criminal Minds,” “The West Wing,” “Shameless,” “Lost” and “Star Trek: Enterprise,” among others.
Bam Margera found after second rehab escape, headed to new facility
Bam Margera has been found following his second escape from rehab in two weeks – and is reportedly on his way to a new center, thanks to an intervention.
The “Jackass” star, 42, was located Monday at a hotel in Deerfield Beach, Fla., according to TMZ, after last being seen Saturday evening near LifeSkills South Florida residential facility.
The outlet reports that police officers were joined by a crisis intervention team, which included Margera’s mother and father, who held an intervention on the spot.
Other family members called in to speak with him, per TMZ, but it’s unclear if the stunt performer’s wife, Nicole Boyd, was involved.
Margera allegedly insisted on seeing the couple’s 4-year-old son, Phoenix Wolf, but was told he needed to get himself back in treatment first, the reality star’s camp told the outlet, noting that Margera “voluntarily agreed” to check in to a new facility.
As previously reported, this is the second time the MTV alum has fled rehab without permission in recent weeks.
The father of one was first reported missing after leaving a facility in Delray Beach on June 13 without authorization.
He allegedly told the center’s manager of his plans to exit the premises so he could check into a different rehab, but cops could not locate him.
Margera was found safe on June 15 while hiding out in a Florida hotel room.
Sources told TMZ at the time that the “Bam’s Unholy Union” alum was sober and cooperative when police picked him up and took him to a second facility, which is the one from which he most recently escaped.
