Actually, William Cowsill died last year, but his death wasn't officially discovered or learned about until this year. He was one of the casualties of Hurricaine Katrina in Louisiana.

That's sad that it took them soo long to find his body. I'm not sure who compiled the list, but it's looks pretty accurate and it's a shame to see how many celebritites and leaders we have lost this year. Scary to think of what the rest of 2006 holds.
