Dakota Culkin, 29, stepped in front of a car Tuesday night and later died at the hospital due suffering massive head injuries. It was on Lincoln Blvd., possibly near Jefferson, but police would not confirm the Westchester neighborhood intersection. They indicated that she may have been crossing illegally since no crime was committed by the driver, who stopped, rendered aid, identified himself and was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Actor and brother McCully Culkin is most well known for starring in the movie Home Alone. This follows two other recent celebrity sibling deaths. Earlier this week, Mark Ruffalo's brother died after apparently playing russian roulette. In October, Jennifer Hudson lost three family members to murder in Chicago.
