The Murder of Adrienne Shelly

by Joseph Remar

Adrienne Shelly was one of Hollywood’s most promising young directors and actresses when she was found dead at approximately 5:45 p.m on November 1, 2006. Her husband, Andy Ostroy, discovered the body in the Abingdon Square apartment in Manhattan’s West Village that she used as an office. Ostroy had dropped her off that morning but had become concerned because she had not been in contact that day and went to the building, asking the doorman to accompany him to the apartment. They found her body hanging from a shower rod in the bathtub with a bed sheet around her neck.

Initially thought to have been a suicide, they would later discover that the actress had been murdered.
