River Phoenix Still Remembered

Fans of late movie star RIVER PHOENIX spent Halloween paying homage to the tragic young actor.

The MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO star died from a drug overdose on the pavement outside Los Angeles' VIPER ROOM in 1993 (31OCT).

And in a bid to keep his memory alive, fans lit candles and pasted the hearthrob's pictures on the walls of the nightclub. Letters were also strewn out in memory. One said, "As a fellow actor I will always miss you. You were a very talented and gifted person." Red and white roses also scattered the pavement where Phoenix took his last breath seven years ago.
