Marilyn Burns who horror fans world wide lovingly know as Sally Hardesty – the sole survivor of Leatherface’s rampage in Tobe Hooper’s original ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ has died. She was found in her home by family members.
The ‘saw’ family is stunned by her passing as the film celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Social media has been swamped with remembrances of her career and fans everywhere have been posting up pictures taken at the many convention appearances she made. All who came in contact with her appear to agree – she was a sweetheart and will be horribly missed.
Our condolences to Ms. Burns family, friends and fans.
