Sally Menke, the movie editor who collaborated with Quentin Tarantino on all of his films, is thought to have died from heat stroke after hiking in the Hollywood Hills, reports BBC News. The 56-year-old's body was discovered in the early hours of Tuesday 28th September 2010, in Beachwood Canyon, Los Angeles, and reports suggest that the Oscar nominated editor had been out walking with her dog, who was found by her side.
Los Angeles is currently experiencing a searing heat-wave, with temperatures reaching 113 degrees. The Huffington Post report that on Monday, "Firefighters carried heavy hoses up hills to battle a small but persistent brush fire west of Los Angeles in Thousand Oaks", and many residents of the city have been left without power.
Menke had worked on every Tarantino from his 1992 debut 'Reservoir Dogs' to last year's 'Inglorious Basterds' starring Brad Pitt. She was nominated for an Academy Award in editing for the latter, as well as for 1995's 'Pulp Fiction'. BBC News quoted her husband, Dean Parisot, as saying she was "truly proud of two things in her life - above all her family and her work". The highly-regarded editor had a history of seizures, and officials believe that she died from hyperthermia after collapsing from the heat.
