Harry Potter Actor Found Dead from Heatstroke in Death Valley

Here's something completely tragic: Actor and MMA fighter Dave Legeno, who played werewolf Fenrir Greyback in the Harry Potter film series, has reportedly succumbed to heatstroke while hiking in Death Valley.

The brawny British actor also appeared in "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Batman Begins."

The Inyo County Sheriff's Department says hikers found Legeno's body Sunday morning in a remote area of the desert park.

Legeno's manager, Rick Bassman, confirmed his death on Friday.

County Deputy Coroner Jason Molinar says Legeno's body was partially decomposed and may have been lying for days in triple-digit heat.

There was no sign of foul play.

Oh my god. Why was he hiking in Death Valley in July? This stuff happens so often here and I just can't understand it. It is so so so fucking hot you guys. Unbelievably hot. And there is no shade to be found anywhere by 12:00. Unless you are out before sun up and hiking at elevation you should not be out hiking in death valley in the middle of the summer. Condolences to his family. What a tragically avoidable death.
