RIP: Sally Menke

Sad news, kids.  Film editor Sally Menke, known for her work with director Quentin Tarantino, was found dead in a Los Angeles park early yesterday morning.  Menke was a mere 56 years old.

The New York Times reports that Menke had gone hiking in Griffith Park and that while the exact cause of death has yet to be determined, there are no signs of foul play.

Sally Menke was an accomplished editor and 2-time Oscar nominee.  She began working with Tarantino on his 1992 film Reservoir Dogs and has worked on all of the director's films to date.  Fans of Tarantino will recognize Sally's name from the "Hi Sally" outtake footage the director liked to slip into the film dailies sent to be edited by Menke.

Sally Menke is survived by her husband and two children.  Goodbye Sally.
