Shield Star's Sad Xmas As Wife Jumps To Her Death

THE SHIELD star WALTON GOGGINS is facing a tough Christmas (04) after his depressed wife jumped to her death from a Los Angeles high-rise just days after filing for divorce.

The actor, who plays bent cop SHANE VENDRELL in the gritty police drama, was still getting over the shock of receiving divorce papers when he discovered pretty LEANNE GOGGINS had plunged to her death from the 17th storey of an office block last month (NOV04).

OSCAR winner Goggins wed Leanne on the set of SHANGHAI NOON in Canada after a year-long whirlwind romance.

One of the couple's friends maintains Canadian Leanne was never happy with life in Los Angeles, where her husband worked, and she was utterly miserable when The Shield took off and Goggins spent days away from home.

According to America's GLOBE, the final straw came when Leanne discovered a dead body a year ago (03) while out walking her dogs - and quickly became depressed about her life.

She jumped to her death just hours after being released from a mental health clinic in Los Angeles.

Goggins, who won his Oscar for producing Best Live Action Short THE ACCOUNTANT in 2002, attended Leanne's memorial service with his The Shield castmates.
