2013: Author Elmore Leonard, best known for his westerns and crime novels, several of which have been turned into movies and TV shows, dies at age 87 in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, of complications from a stroke suffered three weeks earlier. Among his most well-known books are "Get Shorty," "Out of Sight," "3:10 to Yuma," "Rum Punch" (the basis for Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown") and "Pronto," which introduced the character of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, the central figure in the FX television series "Justified."
