The Los Angeles Times reports that the editor went jogging near L.A.'s Griffith park yesterday morning, and the police were alerted when she never returned home. Her car was found in a Griffith Park parking lot and searchers discovered her body at the bottom of a ravine in Beachwood Canyon.
A cause of death wasn't immediately determined, and it wasn't clear if yesterday's record-breaking heat was a factor in her death. Los Angeles hit all-time high temperatures upwards of 115 degrees.
Sally Menke was the editor of every Quentin Tarantino movie - Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, his segment in Four Rooms, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Death Proof and Inglourious Basterds.
