Quentin Tarantino's longtime film editor, Sally Menke, was discovered dead early this morning near Griffith Park in Los Angeles according, the LA Times reports. Menke had gone hiking in the morning, and friends alerted police after she failed to come home. Her body was found by searchers in Beachwood Canyon.
Menke, an Oscar-nominee for her work on "Inglourious Basterds" and "Pulp Fiction," was 56. No cause of death has been reported, though heat is rumored to have played a factor.
