2004: Actor and screenwriter Spalding Gray, 62, is last seen alive leaving his Manhattan apartment. He would be declared missing the following day and his body would be found in New York City's East River in March 2004. It's believed that Gray, who had been suffering from increasingly deep episodes of clinical depression resulting from injuries suffered in a June 2001 car accident, committed suicide by jumping off the side of the Staten Island Ferry. He was best known for his monologues, three of which were turned into the movies "Swimming to Cambodia," "Monster in a Box" and "Gray's Anatomy." He also appeared as an actor in movies such as "The Killing Fields," "Beaches," "Straight Talk" and "The Paper."
