Cause of Leo O’Brien’s Death
Official Toxicology reports were inconclusive but Michael feels differently he told me “a guy we know named Travis shot him 3 times in 2011. The doctors sewed him up but they didn’t sew him up properly, so he died in his sleep from the bullet wound injuries and the improper way the doctors stitched him up. After he came home from the hospital he would always say how much his insides hurt, and his hand would go numb all the time. We believe its medical malpractice… whatever they did to supposedly fix the bullet wounds they did not do right…. somehow his insides shut down and he died in his sleep. He had a private funeral in Inglewood, New Jersey where he was born. He was cremated. In the casket he had on a blue suit and his dread locks were nicely done. I Miss him a lot.”
Return to the Big Screen
The Labor Day 2011 shooting ending up bringing Leo back together with his Last Dragon on-screen brother Taimak Guarriello. Michael talked about Leo getting back into acting and working along side Taimak in his forthcoming movie “I’ve Seen Things“. He didn’t plan on that being his last film; the charismatic guy that made Richie Green shine in The Last Dragon was ready to make a come back.
