He died at his home in Shreveport, so the Shreveport Times will probably carry the obit. I have no reason to doubt his death; I first got the news from a reliable personal source, and not from a TD conspiracy theory board.
What I'm curious about now is the actions and the timing of the IRS to make claim to his estate. I wonder how the competing interests of the IRS, his widow (community property state), and the mortgage company (if any) will be resolved. I heard a while back that his wife did file her tax returns - Married Filing Separately.
He was pro se in Tax Court. Will the matter be dismissed now, or will a default judgment be entered?
Of course, someone could start a big conspiracy theory rumor that Cryer faked his death and fled the country, then fuel it with a bunch of Elvis Cryer sightings.
