Patton Oswalt's Wife, Michelle McNamara, Dies at 46; Family in 'Shock'
Michelle McNamara, founder of the website True Crime Diary and wife of comedian/actor Patton Oswalt, has died.

Breaking our hearts.

As comedian/actor Patton Oswalt deals with the sudden loss of his wife, Michelle McNamara, who died in her sleep just over a week ago at age 46, he is receiving much needed support from his 7-year-old daughter, Alice.

On Sunday, Oswalt posted a tweet with the sweetest and most uplifting quote from Alice:

Oswalt has been keeping mostly quiet on social media since the tragic news, but he did pay tribute to McNamara on Friday, writing how “happily humbling” it was to have her in his life.

No cause of death has been released, but her sudden passing “was a complete shock to her family and friends, who loved her dearly,” says Oswalt’s rep.

McNamara married Oswalt in 2005, and the couple welcomed their daughter Alice in 2009.
