Ed McKie, 1958-2008

The Weekly regrets to report that Ed McKie passed away in his sleep this past weekend from a heart attack.

You may remember McKie from our July 31 cover story, "Metheds to His Madness," detailing McKie's struggle to open a nonprofit foundation in support of recovering addicts in downtown Santa Ana—a dream McKie never got to see come to life.

While there are no details for a memorial service yet, keep watching this space for further information.

Friends of McKie are currently trying to determine his next of kin. McKie was 50 years old.
