1976: Actor Sal Mineo, an Oscar nominee for his roles in "Rebel Without a Cause" and "Exodus," is stabbed to death in the alley behind his apartment building in West Hollywood, California, at the age of 37.

Williams was paroled from prison in the early 1990s, but was soon imprisoned again for other crimes.
