This is very sad.
Patton Oswalt, stalwart defender and promoter of all things nerdy, has lost his wife, Michelle McNamara. I saw this over on Jezebel and wanted to cross post it here as I know many of us love Michelle and her writing and also Patton and his work.
Michelle and Patton have a seven-year-old daughter named Alice.
