   The grandson of Rita Hayworth has most likely committed suicide. Andrew Embiricos was discovered with a plastic bag over his head in his Manhattan apartment. An autopsy is scheduled to offer a definitive conclusion as to his official cause of death.

   Embiricos had a storied life. He teamed with his family to advocate for increased research to cure Alzheimer’s disease. He also dabbled dubiously as a amateur gay-porn filmmaker.

<——–Rita Hayworth pioneered the casting of Latin actresses in roles that had little to do with her ethnicity. The American Film Institute listed Hayworth as one of the greatest movie stars of all time. Her iconic motion pictures included roles in  Only Angels have Wings, The Strawberry Blonde, Gilda, Cover Girl, The Lady from Shanghai, Pal Joey, They Came to Cordura, and Separate Tables. Rita was the recipient of the National Screen Heritage Award in 1977.

   Hayworth married five times. Her husbands include Orson Welles, Dick Haymes, and Prince Aly Khan. In 1987, she died from complications of Alzheimer’s at age 68. One of the major fund raisers for the Alzheimer’s Association is the annual Rita Hayworth Gala. Her daughter Yasmin Aga Khan has been  the hostess for this event and a major sponsor since 1985.

   Andrew Embiricos was the son of Yasmin Aga Khan. He was only twenty-five.
