Sandra Bullock's stalker kills himself

Joshua Corbett, who was earlier convicted of stalking Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock, was found dead inside his La Crescenta, California, home from a self-inflicted wound. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) served a warrant at Corbett's home on Wednesday morning. He then barricaded himself in his home, resulting in police officers responding to the incident. He claimed he had a weapon and threatened to kill the officers.

Crisis negotiators reportedly spent five hours attempting to convince Corbett to leave his home before they entered the house and found the suspect dead.

While police did not confirm the nature of the warrant, Corbett had failed to show up for a hearing related to his probation on April 23.

In 2014, Corbett was tried and sentenced for stalking Bullock and breaking into her home. Officials said at the time that Corbett had two dozen illegal firearms and ammunition in his residence.
