Brooklyn Man Allegedly Confesses to Shelly's Murder

The suspicious conditions under which actress/filmmaker Adrienne Shelly's death was ruled a suicide just got a lot clearer, reports WCBS:

Police have charged 19-year-old Diego Pillco, of the 300-block of Prospect Avenue in Brooklyn, with second degree murder.
Sources tell CBS 2’s Ti-Hua Chang that Pillco, a construction worker, apparently confessed to the crime.
Pillco allegedly punched the 5-foot-2 actress after she complained about the noise he was making in the West Village apartment building where her office is located, killing her.
He then allegedly admitted to dragging the body up to her office, and positioning her in the shower to make her death look like a suicide.

This is officially the saddest story of the year.
