However, she played no role whatsoever in his accidental death,” Richards said. “I can confirm that my client was present when Mr. Ruffalo shot himself,” Richards said Tuesday. “She was picking up some keys.” He said the gun belonged to Ruffalo and that Ruffalo was a known cocaine user who had used drugs and played with guns in the past in front of numerous witnesses (blah, blah, blah).

We’re going to be sad about this the rest of our lives. We want the perpetrator properly punished.”A rep for Mark Ruffalo, who has starred in “You Can Count on Me” and “Zodiac,” had no comment.
