Ray Liotta Cause Of Death
Ray Liotta, best remembered for his role as mobster Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas” and for adding seductively edgy energy to a gallery of crime shows and thrillers, has died.
He was 67 years old at the time.
According to his spokeswoman, Jennifer Allen, Liotta died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic, where he was filming “Dangerous Waters.” No foul play is suspected, according to Allen, who added that Liotta’s fiancée, Jacy Nittolo, was on the island with him.
In a statement, Scorsese said: “I’m absolutely shocked and devastated by the sudden, unexpected death of Ray Liotta.. As an actor, he was incredibly gifted, adventurous, and courageous.”
In a four-decade playing career, Liotta established himself as one of Hollywood’s most dependable tough-guy actors, adept at portraying cops and criminals in films such as “Something Wild,” “Cop Land,” and “Killing Them Softly.”

After meeting at a baseball game where her ex-husband Mark Grace was playing for the Chicago Cubs, Liotta engaged actress and producer Michelle Grace in February 1997. Before getting a divorce in 2004, the couple was blessed with a daughter named Karsen.
During an appearance on Jay Leno’s Garage, Ray Liotta said that the daughters of Frank Sinatra, Nancy and Tina Sinatra, had previously sent a horse’s head to Liotta in the mail. The joke was told as a reaction to Liotta turning down the opportunity to play their late father in a miniseries that they were working on, only to have Liotta reprise the role in The Rat Pack, a television film that aired on HBO in 1998.
