“A man who killed himself during a standoff with Los Angeles police was convicted last year of breaking into Sandra Bullock’s home and stalking the Oscar-winning actress, his lawyer said Thursday,” the AP reports. “Joshua James Corbett missed a court date last month and on Wednesday barricaded himself inside his house when police arrived to serve an arrest warrant, attorney Steve Sitkoff told The Associated Press. Corbett was scheduled to appear for a progress report as part of his probation in the Bullock stalking.”
The report cites LAPD Detective Meghan Aguilar saying after Corbett threatened to kill police, SWAT officers responded to his home.
“Corbett, 42, was found dead about five hours later at the home in the La Crescenta neighborhood,” the AP reports. “The death was reported as a suicide and an autopsy was planned Thursday, said coroner spokesman Ed Winter.”
