"The Dukes of Hazzard" star Catherine Bach--she played Daisy Duke--apparently called police this morning saying her husband had shot and killed himself at their Encino home. When paramedics arrived to the home around 11:30 a.m. on the 15900 block of Woodvale Road, Lopez was already dead. Police are investigating it as a possible suicide.

Peter Lopez, one of Michael Jackson's music attorneys, married Bach in 1990 and had two children with her. In 1998, Lopez founded “C.O.A.C.H. For Kids," which provides "free medical services for children from low-income families in Los Angeles County," according to Radar. He also worked with Wilson Phillips, Vanilla Ice, Andrea Bocelli and The Eagles.
