    Default "You Light up My Life" songwriter/accused serial rapist, commits suicide

    a serial rapist!!!!!!!!!!!!! that's an even worse crime than writing 'You Light Up My Life"

    and his son?????????

    geez, what an up beat family

    I wonder if this is that so called "suicide kit" that the Granny sells online

    Songwriter Brooks apparently kills himself in NYC

    AP
    By COLLEEN LONG, Associated Press Sun May 22, 6:49 pm ET
    NEW YORK Joseph Brooks, the Academy Award-winning songwriter of "You Light Up My Life" who was awaiting trial on charges of sexually assaulting more than a dozen women, was found dead Sunday of an apparent suicide in his Manhattan apartment, police said.

    Brooks, 73, was discovered in his Upper East Side apartment around 12:30 p.m. by a friend with whom he had planned to have lunch, police spokesman Paul Browne said. It was not immediately clear how long his body had been there.

    Brooks' death comes five months after his son was arrested in an unrelated, high-profile case. The son is charged with murdering his girlfriend, whose body was found in December in an overflowing bathtub at a swank hotel in SoHo. The elder Brooks was discovered on the living room couch with a plastic dry-cleaning bag around his head and a towel wrapped around his neck, Browne said. A hose attached to a helium tank was hooked up to the bag, he said. The apartment door was ajar. The medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Police said a suicide note was found but they didn't reveal its contents.

    Brooks was awaiting trial on allegations that he molested women who were lured to his apartment for supposed acting auditions. He pleaded not guilty.
    Brooks' lawyer and Manhattan prosecutors had no immediate comment about Brooks' death.

    Brooks won the Academy Award for best original song for the 1977 Debby Boone ballad "You Light Up My Life" and directed a movie of the same name. It is about a comedian who has a one-night stand with a director. Brooks also won a Grammy for the song.

    He pleaded not guilty in 2009 to rape, sexual abuse and other charges in the attacks on 13 women. His trial date had not been set. Prosecutors say he lured most of the women to his apartment through an online ad offering auditions for a movie role, then sexually assaulted them after making them drink apparently drugged wine as part of an "acting exercise."

    Brooks suffered a stroke in 2008, and his lawyer had said the songwriter's health was deteriorating during the court case. He appeared gaunt and shuffled slowly as he came to recent court dates.

    Brooks' son, Nicholas, is charged with murder in the death of his girlfriend, Peruvian-American swimsuit designer Sylvie Cachay. She was found dead, half-clothed and faceup, in a tub at the Soho House, an elite club and hotel, after water began leaking through to the floor below. Nicholas Brooks has pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail at the Rikers Island jail complex.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Why bother with raping it? The grocery store has a whole aisle of that stuff.

    I really like the Kashi flakes with the black currants and walnuts.
    Quaker oatmeal squares are good, too.

    Is Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch the best, or would you say Crunch Berries?

    Just curious, how does a 73 yr old man rape anyone under the age, of well, 70? My girlfriend could probably kick my ass once she got nails dug in.

    At Starbucks, some people know how to make a frappucinno that tastes like Captain Crunch Berries. Definitely not on the menu but a couple people have ordered it which is SO creepy.

    Okay, back to suicide.
