Star of Free Willy dies

Keiko, the star of the Free Willy movies, died on Friday from suspected pneumonia in the Norwegian bay where he had been living out his days since his release from captivity.

He was buried in a secret location this week with just 7 people present. "We wanted to let him be at peace," said Dane Richards, one of his carers. "He’s free now and in the wild."
