Gary Coleman's Ex-Manager Slams Shannon Price, Alleges Foul Play in Actor's Death

by at . Comments

Dion Mial, the former manager of Gary Coleman, is willing to flat out say what many people are secretly thinking - his death was not the result of an accident.

"I wholeheartedly believe there was foul play here," Mial told Radar Online.

The 42-year-old died in May after falling and suffering a brain hemorrhage. He was hospitalized and eventually pulled off life support by his ex-wife Shannon Price.

Price has come under fire from many of the actor's friends and associates and friends for her behavior during and after his hospitalization and tragic passing.

Selling that Gary Coleman death photo was the final straw.

Gary Coleman and Dion Mial many years ago.

Mial is the executor of Coleman’s 1999 will, which may or may not be valid (another, more recent will has surfaced in recent days but has not been made public).

Executor or not, Dion has no qualms about sharing his thoughts on Price: “The picture that Shannon took in the hospital is much worse than people can see.”

"There is nothing covert about her behavior and how she handled this. There are criminal intentions relative to Gary’s death,” Dion added but did not elaborate.

Price, whose odd behavior began with her nonchalant 911 call after Coleman's fall, has blamed Mial for her inability to afford the house she shared with Gary.

She has continued to shop around interviews, asking up to $50,000, and in the interviews, has adamantly denied responsibility for Coleman's fall and death.

This is strange, as no one accused Shannon Price of anything, other than being a terrible person (before Mial's quotes). All of this begs a disturbing question:

Did she want Coleman dead, and somehow engineer it?


As a result of his death there was money even though he was technically broke. They were discussing this on TV the other night. He would have gotten it after turning 65 or his estate could claim it upon his death from the Actors union (can't remember exactly) or something like that.
Since Shannon was once married to Gary, she knew he didn't want to be taken off Life support! Nobody signs an order saying DO NOT REMOVE ME FROM LIFE SUPPORT then tells people they don't want to remain on life support. She had to be lying!
The 911 tape alone says a lot. She was just WAY TOO calm. If someone you love is dying you are NOT calm. The icing on the cake is taking pictures of him lying in the hospital to sell. MY GOD what a cold woman....who in my opinion is capable of murder. Will anything be done about it? I really doubt it, how sad that she could be allowed to get away with this.


Sounds like someone found out that the life insurance pays double for accidental death or it paid nothing for natural causes and will pay for accidental. I don't believe the story.


Gary Coleman will long be remembered for his contributions in entertainment. It is a sad *fact that he ended up being exploited by his parents who left him all the way penniless.Gary still worked,in the blue collar industry because he knew he had to work,
whether as a security guard,a greeter,or commercials. Shannon may
have offered companionship,and he might have still loved her (in their own way)but in the final analysis,"Whatcha see is whatcha get". No woman who is grieving over her spouse becomes so out there as far as generating publicity and allowing herself on the cover of a tabloid with her (dying)husband without giving permission for photographers to enter Gary's hospital room.This woman is posing for that picture.If she did not give permission for the picture (or pictures) to be taken, where is her outrage??


I find Shannon Price to be a Narcissistic person who lived off the **fame** of her husband. I would not doubt if she caused his injuries then acted as if she could not help him. Devious people are well educated and versed at pulling such antics off. When she stated to 911 that the blood would cause her to go into a seizure, I was thinking to myself ** oh please little ms drama queen ** seeing blood doesn't cause seizures. There was a reason Gary divorced her. I do not understand why he did not make her leave all together. I hope his family sues the hospital for negligence in confirming her legal rights to stopping life support efforts. Two days was not enough to allow the brain to cease swelling and to return to its non injury physical state. This is a horrible story all the way around. Who has NOT failed Gary in his short life???
