SNL's Cheri Oteri's Father murdered

Saturday Night Lives’ comedian Cheri Oteri who played the hilarious Spartan cheerleader along side Will Ferrell was struck with terrifying news of her Father found dead. Gaetano Thomas Oteri was stabbed to death by his roommate songwriter Richard Fagan last Saturday night.

The investigation by Detectives Derry Baltimore and David Achord shows that Oteri and Fagan got into a fight inside the residence at approximately 9 p.m. Saturday. Fagan admits to pulling a pocket knife and cutting Oteri during the fight. He then left.

At 10:45 p.m. Saturday, Fagan was stopped by Officer Jessie Loy on Dickerson Pike near Grace Street for a traffic violation. Fagan smelled heavily of alcohol, admitted to drinking six shots, and was arrested for DUI. He bonded out of jail at 2:15 p.m. Sunday.

At 2:15 p.m., a friend of the roommates, who had been told of the fight by Fagan, called the Emergency Communications Center and reported that the screen door to the home was locked, the house appeared to be in disarray, and Oteri was not responding to his knocks. Medcom found Oteri dead inside.

The man found dead inside his 204 Burgandy Hill Road home Sunday afternoon, Gaetano Thomas Oteri, 69, is believed to have died from a wrist laceration that caused significant bleeding.

Oteri’s roommate, Richard William Fagan, 61, is being held without bond on a charge of criminal homicide.

Cheri Oteri or her reps have not issued a statement about this tragedy. I'm sure from the news of hearing your Father or family member taken from you in such a malicious and selfless way must be overwhelming for Cheri. I'll keep you all updated on any developing stories regarding this post.

To lighten the mood a bit here's a clip of the Spartan cheerleaders doing there thang.
