A Current Affair : Kelly Van Dyke Suicide / Jack Nance
Kelly Jean Van Dyke (June 5, 1958 – November 17, 1991) was an American actress and adult film performer. She was the daughter of actor Jerry Van Dyke, niece of the actor Dick Van Dyke, and cousin once removed of Shane Van Dyke.
As an actress she was known for such television programs as My Mother the Car.
In May 1991, actor Jack Nance married Kelly, who worked in the adult film industry under the name Nancee Kelly.
Kelly Van Dyke-Nance committed suicide by hanging on November 17, 1991.
According to her younger brother Richard, Jack Nance, who was in Bass Lake, California, filming Meatballs 4 at the time, attempted to console her on the phone as she talked about suicide. After a lightning storm knocked out the phones in Bass Lake, it subsequently took over 45 minutes for Nance and the director, Bobby Logan, to find a deputy sheriff, who in turn contacted Los Angeles police and the apartment manager. They broke in and found that the 33-year-old had hanged herself.
Kelly was discovered by her friend, Lisa Loring, who called out to neighbors—two young men who called 911 and cut her down in an attempt to resuscitate her until the paramedics arrived.
