Adult Film Actress Commits Suicide After Being Accused Of Homophobia For Not Working With Gay Porn Star

A 23-year-old porn star committed suicide after she was criticized online for a tweet in which she said she wouldn’t do a porn scene with a man who had shot gay porn for her “safety,” Fox News reported.

August Ames, one of the biggest rising stars in the porn industry, died Tuesday due to asphyxiation by hanging, the Ventura County Medical Examiner told The Blast.

“She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me,” said her husband, Kevin Moore, to porn trade magazine Adult Video News (AVN). “Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time.”

Ames, who had more than 270 onscreen porn credits, had received intense criticism online for a tweet in which she said she wouldn’t have onscreen sex with a man who had done gay porn.

17-Year-Old Commits Suicide During School Fire Drill After Posting Goodbye Message

A high school student student fatally shot himself during a school fire drill. As WKMG reports, 17-year-old senior Seth Sutherland of Lake Minneola High School posted messages on social media and sent thoughts to loved ones before killing himself on Tuesday.

Authorities are treating the death as a “planned event.”

Lake County sheriff’s spokesman John Harrell shared, “We have reasons to believe that this was a planned event. [The courtyard near the bus loop] is out in the open, but it was not a very populated and crowded area at that time. It seems like the majority of the student body was on the other side of the building.”

Harrell said he doesn’t believe any students witnessed or heard the shooting. Sixteen-year-old Isaiah Vargas, however, said that he saw what happened through a window. 

“The body was just lifeless. Teachers were running and everything, saw it through the window. Just terrible,” Vargas said.

Sky Vision Commits to True Crime

Barnaby Shingleton, the director of entertainment and factual at Sky Vision, talks to TV Real about the ongoing demand for crime-themed factual programming.

Chalk it up to morbid curiosity but there’s something fascinating about stories centered on illegal activity. These tales are even more intriguing—and terrifying—when they involve real-life crimes, including murder. As dark as the material is, true-crime TV programming continues to be an extremely popular genre and one that Sky Vision, the production and distribution arm of Sky, has had success with.

“Over the last couple of years Sky Vision has greatly expanded its true-crime catalog, reflecting the increased audience demand for this genre of programming,” says Barnaby Shingleton, the director of entertainment and factual at Sky Vision. “There are close to 500 hours of [true-crime] content in Sky Vision’s catalog, from long-running series like I Knew My Murderer and It Takes a Killer (Bellum Entertainment) through to limited series

Teen Commits Suicide After Being "Scared Straight" By School Officers

Did being “scared straight” go too far? On January 11, 16-year-old Corey Walgren committed suicide after being confronted by police at his school. His parents believe that the interrogation caused their son to kill himself and are speaking out.

According to an investigative feature in the Chicago Tribunethe incident began when Walgren was questioned about having a video on his phone of a consensual sexual encounter with a fellow classmate at Naperville North High School and whether he shared the content with friends. A cop and dean questioned the teen about having “child pornography” and allegedly threatened that he’d be put on the state’s sex offender registry. Walgren had no criminal history and had never been in serious trouble at school.

Per records, a female classmate had told the dean in January that Walgren had a recording of their sexual encounter and he was playing it for friends.

Oxygen commits to crime

NBCUniversal-owned US cablenet Oxygen Media has confirmed it will complete its rebrand as a female-skewing crime investigation network this summer.

Oxygen is expanding its existing weekend Crime Time block and has ordered a revival of Dick Wolf’s Cold Justice, which was cancelled by TNT after three seasons. The new show will be produced by Wolf Reality and Magical Elves.

The network has also ordered The Jury Speaks, from Glass Entertainment Group, which examines high-profile cases through the eyes of a jury.

Both shows join Three Days to Live, from Joke Productions and Lusid Media, which was picked up last June and premieres on March 5.

Non-crime-related current Oxygen series Bad Girls Club and Sisterhood of Hip-Hop, plus the forthcoming Battle of the Ex Besties, will no longer on the channel.

Oxygen is also looking to buy off-network crime shows to add to its original series.
