Just to let anyone who may be friends or otherwise with the characters Lynara and/or Alyssa (spelling?) --
Some time on Thursday, 22nd April, the person who played Lynara was shot and killed in a murder-suicide also involving the person who played the character Alyssa (also deceased) in Yosemite West (Mariposa County).
I have no further information on the circumstances and out of respect for their families, will not be disclosing any further known details. If you wish to learn more, the Mariposa Sheriff's office will update the public as/when more information becomes available via their website and I am sure news outlets will pick it up.
