Mel Gibson Speaks Out About Construction Worker's Suicide
The house is currently under heavy construction and the Lethal Weapon star and his family were not present at the time of the incident. A representative for the actor/director admits Gibson feels "terrible" about the situation, even though he had never met Van Dyke himself. Van Dyke is alleged to have been an old friend of the contractor hired to work on Gibson's mansion, but had no direct ties to the actor.
According to TMZ.com, Van Dyke worked as a construction foreman on movie sets including The Matrix Reloaded, Star Trek: Nemesis and Dr. Dolittle 2. He was reportedly experiencing financial difficulty following a messy divorce at the time of his death.
