Crane worked as a realtor for Pacific Rim, according to the firm’s website, but he also claimed to have been a child actor.
According to a source with knowledge of Disney Channel actors, “There is no record of Kevin Crane starring in a Disney Channel series or movie,” reported People magazine. Warner Brothers was not able to confirm if he worked with them.
Crane, who was an agent for luxury residential properties, had sold homes to rapper Big Sean and other celebrities, reported the Daily Mail.
Police have described the shooting as a domestic incident.
A GoFundMe page started by Siddiqi’s Paper Source team is asking for donations for her two sons. “We are heartbroken over the loss of our beloved team member who meant so much to all of us,” the page creator said. She was called a “warm and loving mother, daughter and friend, and a wonderful co-worker who brought her creativity to work every day.”
“She possessed an unimaginable amount of strength,” an unnamed friend told People. “Her kids were her number one priority. She was their whole world, and they were hers.”
“I can sincerely say she was a loyal friend, a strong woman, and an absolute joy to be around. She was incredibly compassionate towards friends, and always put everyone else first. I’ll miss her terribly.”
The Blast reported this week that legal documents showed that Siddiqi filed a restraining order against Crane’s mother in early March. “She (Gregory) told her son (Crane) if I kept my kids away from her that, that would be the end of me, and she will make sure she gets custody of them, after ‘the end’ of me,” according to the document.
“My kids also need to be in this order, because she harassed me, the next day she went to their school without my knowledge. I feel that because she is not in her right mind towards me that my kids will also be in danger with her contact,” the filing added.
