ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Some fans of "Breaking Bad," the AMC series
which concluded Sunday night, were inspired to place an obituary for
character Walter White in the Albuquerque Journal. The notice
appears on page A4 of Friday's Journal. It's
headlined "White, Walter" and includes a photo of Bryan Cranston, the
actor who played the chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin. The
obituary says the 52-year-old "founded a meth manufacturing empire" and
that he died "after a long battle with lung cancer and a gunshot
wound." The five-season series was set and filmed in Albuquerque. Los
Lunas science teacher David Layman, one of the members an unofficial
fan group that placed the obit, says many are sad to see the show go.
But he says the obit helps provide some closure.
