Brigitte Burdine, a casting director with credits spanning World of Warcraft, Killzone 2 and Mortal Kombat, was killed early this morning in a hit-and-run accident as she was walking home from a late-night date with her boyfriend. She was 48.

Well known and admired for her work in an industry dominated by male co-workers and consumers, Burdine's games development work spanned more than a decade. Her IMDB profile lists the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot as her most current project. She had worked on PS3 exclusives such as ModNation Racers, Infamous, Killzone 2 and the SOCOM series before that.

Police said Burdine was struck at the corner of Culver Boulevard and Pershing Drive at 1:45 a.m. as she was walking home from the Shack, a hamburger stand in Marina Del Ray. Police assume she'd been out on a date. The suspect vehicle is said to be a dark sedan, and should have front-end damage from the impact. Burdine was taken to a hospital but soon pronounced dead from her injuries.

Los Angeles police have appealed to the public for anyone who saw the accident, or has knowledge of it, to contact investigators.

RIP :(

I'll keep this thread updated!

Wow. Its always sad to hear people actually leave the scene after they seriously hurt, or kill someone. Justice will be served, in this life or the next. R.I.P. Brigitte Burdine.

That's definitely something I wouldn't leave alone if any of the ones I care about were victims of such a crime. Some guys also did a hit-and-run on one of my young uncles but he survived. Luckily.

Lets just all hope this useless piece of dog sh*t is caught and brought to justice. People make me sick. The sad thing is he will get caught, but he'll be out eventually, and prob. still get his liscence back!! Thats how f*cked up this system is.......................I read a story here in Massachusetts about this guy who got 3 life sentences!! thats right 3 life sentences!! anyway this scumbag takes a few computer classes and behaves himself for a few months and the parole board let him go!! I just read in the paper he gunned down a police officer while robbing a Khols store. You just never know what type if justice will be served.....they should find Brigitte's killer, tie him to a chair and smash his own black sudan right into him!! if they did that then maybe.......just maybe the family can move on with their lives.

RIP Brigitte.........and good luck to the family.
