GREG PLITT DEATH R.I.P.



Police report

Investigators in Southern California are trying to figure out who told fitness model and Bravo reality star  Jr. that he could shoot a video on a busy train track, where Plitt was struck and killed by a passenger train Saturday.
Plitt, 37, whose real name was George, was being videotaped by two men on the tracks north of the Burbank train station Saturday afternoon when he was hit by a Metrolink train, according to Burbank police.
Investigators have ruled out suicide, and apparently Plitt had shot workout videos on railroad tracks before.
But how and why did he and his companions get into a restricted area of the tracks?
Police have interviewed witnesses who saw Plitt standing on the track even as the train's horn was blaring, Burbank Police Scott Meadow told the Associated Press.
It's possible Plitt thought the train was on a parallel track, Meadows said.
"It's like a blind turn," he said. "When the train came, you might not be able to tell which set the train is on."
Reality TV fans and members of the fitness were mourning the loss Plitt is best known for appearing on Bravo's reality series Work Out. His episode on Bravo's new seriesFriends to Lovers is a few weeks away.
Plitt "was as nice as he was beautiful," tweeted Andy Cohen. "We couldn't take our eyes off Greg Plitt after we cast him on Work Out. ... (He) seemed invincible, like," wrote the Bravo producer.
