Burns was found dead in her home in Houston, Texas today by a family member, according to her rep. The cause of death is currently unknown.
Burns is known for her role as Sally Hardesty, the heroine and sole survivor of the classic “Texas Chain Saw Massacre”, but didn’t have many leading roles after that. She did have a cameo in both “Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation” and “Texas Chainsaw 3D”.
I always felt that Marilyn’s performance as Sally was one of the best in a horror movie and I personally will miss her. R.I.P Marilyn.
