Luke Perry Found Dead in Motel Room Full of Bullfrogs

Actor Luke Perry--most well-known for playing Dylan McKay on the original Beverly Hills, 90210 in the 1990s--was found dead in a Memphis motel room, late Sunday night, surrounded by hundreds of bullfrogs in hundreds of cages.

Perry is survived by his wife, Tilda Swinton, and his daughters, Dakota Fanning and JonBenet Ramses II. "Luke was really into raising bullfrogs," said Swinton, crying. "That's what he was in Memphis for: The annual bullfrog care convention. He went every year."

The cause of death was deemed to be an accidental oxycodone overdose. Perry had been prescribed the medication for severe foot pain caused by fallen arches.

Services will be held at the United Methodist Church in Calgary. Perry's family requests that no flowers or gifts be delivered and instead that donations be made to the Bullfrog Foundation or the Association For Helping Those With Fallen Arches.

"This is just fucked up and tragic," commented former 90210 castmate Gabrielle Carteris.

"He had it coming," said former 90210 castmate Jennie Garth. "Just kidding. He didn't."
