When news broke last night about the loss of Michelle McNamara, the wife of Patton Oswalt and notable true crime writer, it was a little difficult to wrap around. When you lose someone like Prince or David Bowie, it’s larger than life and the whole world reacts. But for someone like McNamara, that personal loss that crushes one person’s world, it is hard to wrap your head around. And it is tougher to deal with.
There are plenty pouring out support for Oswalt and the couple’s daughter Alice online right now, including those who have worked with Oswalt in the past. If there’s a bright spot through this dark moment, it’s knowing that there are people out there who are providing that kind of support.
