A teenage construction worker has been charged with the murder of US actress Adrienne Shelly who was found dead earlier this month.

Investigators initially thought that the 40-year-old, who appeared in The Unbelievable Truth, committed suicide. A footprint found in her Manhattan home led police to 19-year-old Diego Pillco, originally from Ecuador. Her husband, Andrew Ostroy who found his wife's dead body, said he is devastated by her "senseless" death.


"To those closest to her, she was the best mother and step-mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend anyone could ask for," he added. The actress, who appeared alongside Matt Dillon in 2005's Factotum, was discovered hanging from the shower rod above her bathtub.

Oh I remember her! Isn't she the one who starred in some Hal Hartley movies?
