Breaking Bad fans place obituary

Fans of Breaking Bad anti-hero Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston, marked the end of the series with an obituary for him in the Albuquerque Journal

Some fans of Breaking Bad, the AMC series which concluded on Sunday night, have placed an obituary for character Walter White in the Albuquerque Journal.

The notice, which appeared on page A4 of today's edition, was headlined "White, Walter" and included a photo of Bryan Cranston, the actor who played the chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin.

The obituary said the 52-year-old "founded a meth manufacturing empire" and he died "after a long battle with lung cancer and a gunshot wound".

The five-season series was set and filmed in Albuquerque.

Los Lunas science teacher David Layman, one of the members of an unofficial fan group which placed the obit, said many are sad to see the show go. But he said the obit helped give them some closure.
