Openly Gay author Perry Moore was found Dead

Perry Moore, an author and the executive producer of The Chronicles of Narnia film franchise and the gay super hero book, HERO, was found dead.

NY Daily News reports:
Perry Moore, 39, was found unconscious in the bathroom at about 9:30 a.m. by his partner, Hunter Hill, inside the W. Houston St. home they shared, the sources said.

"We're in shock," said the producer's father, Bill Moore, 69, adding that he just spoke to his son the night before.

"He was in a great, great mood," he said. "No one was expecting this."

Moore - who with beau Hill wrote and directed "Lake City," starring Sissy Spacek and Rebecca Romijn - was pronounced dead shortly after responders arrived. The exact cause of death has not been determined, but sources said it appeared to be an overdose of OxyContin.

"We're so sad," said his father. "He's been able to reach out and touch a lot of people.
My heart goes out to his family and partner
