Lansing Brown, Jr.
Brown is often recalled for a tragic event on Sunday, September 2, 1934. Brown accidentally shot and killed his friend, crooner Russ Columbo, when an antique pistol discharged and the bullet ricocheted into Columbo's skull.
After Columbo's death, Brown was cleared of all charges, but he remained deeply affected by the incident.
