David Soul‘s name keeps coming up in discussions. Many people seem to recall him dying, years ago.
Here are some comments from this website:

We also remember that David Soul of the 70′s show Starsky and Hutch comiting suicide on or near christmas because he was dispondant over his wife’s cancer! Even news reports of relatives and police discovering his body underneath the christmas tree. You can imagine myself and my wife’s reaction when we saw David Soul make an appearance as a cameo on the remake of Starsky and Hutch movie. We sat in silence and stunned by the revelation that Mr. Soul was indeed alive.
OMG David Soul is still alive? I remember exactly the same as yourself, Perry..Christmas time, despondent/depressed etc and family finding him and this was years and years ago.
This is way too weird for words.

yes, he died!
After that, Li suggested that David Soul, of Starsky & Hutch, might have been mixed up with Pete Duel, of Alias Smith & Jones. Part of Peter Duel’s suicide matches the David Soul memory, but the context is very different.
i also remember clearly the David Soule death—(i am shocked, up until I read this just now I still thought he was dead!)
david soul…died along time ago too.
David Soul committed suicide near Christmas (years ago), butreturns for a cameo as “Hutch”.
I’m 100% certain that David Soul is dead.
As I’m writing this, David Soul (born 1943) is alive and well and continuing his career as an actor and musician… and — eerily — he doesn’t look that different than he did during the Starsky & Hutch years. If he’s had a face lift, it’s one of the best and most natural-looking lifts I’ve seen.
