Richard Jeni dead at 49

Comedian Richard Jeni, who appeared frequently on the "Tonight" show and headlined a number of HBO comedy specials, died Saturday, March 11, 2006, in Los Angeles in what appeared to be a suicide; he was 49.

Jeni died of a gunshot wound to the head, an hour after police responded to a 911 call from the comedian's girlfriend and he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital. A final confirmation of suicide was still pending Monday morning, after further investigation of the incident and an autopsy.
