ER actress Vanessa Marquez was gunned down in a hail of bullets last Thursday, one day before she was allegedly scheduled to meet with journalist
@RonanFarrow for a bombshell story he is writing about @NBC.
Marquez posted a defiant post on Facebook alleging that twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had her removed from Twitter due to inside knowledge she had regarding George Clooney’s sexuality and his alleged involvement in the #MeToo movement.

The official report is that Marquez’s landlord called 911 out of concern for her. Police say she was combative and brandished a handgun which later turned out to be a BB gun. Police shot her once in the torso. She was rushed to a local hospital where she died.

This following recent accusations that Farrow’s former producer made claiming that NBC impeded his reporting on Harvey Weinstein.
Marquez previously accused Clooney of having her booted from the show ER which Clooney denied. “I had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted,” read his statement on Oct. 13, 2017. “I take her at her word. I was not a writer or a producer or a director on that show. I had nothing to do with casting. I was an actor and only an actor. If she was told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. The fact that I couldn’t affect her career is only surpassed by the fact that I wouldn’t.”
Marquez was 49.
