    this is so sad.. i didnt even know merlin sanata died 4 yrs ago until now when i was looking through the cosby show cast... for those of u who dont know who he was, he played rudys bf later in the series.. he was stanley he also played in the steve harvey show as romeo santana.. he also played in the 1993 show "Getting By" and its sad to see someone who uve seen in old shows as a little kid all grown up and now dead.. its sad he got shot in 2002 while sitting in the passenger side of a friends car.  1 girl and 2 guys have been found and arrested the girl i guess was the one who planned this all out and the 2 guys just killed him.  the 2 guys have been set to prison for 25 yrs and the girl we dont know yet. well all i gotta say now is

    Yes this was very sad and such a waste. I remember when it happened but I did not realize they finally caught the guilty parties. I'm glad to hear that.
