    Upon reading several chain letters on myspace, I have seen multiple reports of Ben savage or Corey Matthews on The TV Show Boy Meets World, to have passed away. I have googled it but came up short. Does anyone know the truth about this? Or the credibility of this story?

    read the rumored death section.

    Myspace bulletins are 40% lies, 40% surveys, and 20% "OMG I GOT ANEW PICTURE COMMENTZ, PELASE!!"
    well, from my experience, at least. :)

    haha, trying to prove truth over internet lies by using

    currently, it says "Savage was driving intoxicated and crashed his automobile. He went into a coma and never awoke. He died on September 16, 2006."

    never "prove" anything with wikipedia

    wikipedia's just a quick reference for things like this. It's not like I'm basing my senior thesis on a wikipedia article.

    What shows up for me, at least:
    and it's been locked due to vandalism.

    Wikipedia's a good little site for quick lookups like that.

    would snopes be better?

    Just stick ben savage dead into google and go nuts.

    For reasons like this...
    "Saturday, September 16th Ben Savage passed away at Memorial Hospital in Canton, Ohio at 10:47 pm. Savage was in a fatal accident sending him into a coma which he did not awake."...I hardly ever check out snopes.

    They obviously didn't take in to account the grammatical structure of a submitted report which shows the journalistic talents of a tool.

    I know that most of the bulletins posted there are BS, and rediculous. But SInce I couldnt find anything on google and due to having lost 4 close friends in the past year, death to me is nothing to disregard. Thanks for all the help guys!

    So this has NOT happened, correct? My sister told me her friend mentioned he died and I freaked. I love Boy Meets World and Ben's character (Cory), so this would've been horrible if true.

    And if he really did pass away, it'd be all over Google News. And since it isn't, I will just move along. :)

    Gone but not forgotten.
    We'd know about it pretty early if it had happened.

    Yeah, I think we would have seen it on CNN or the front cover of the NY Times if this really did happen.
