RIP: Linda Riss Pugach


They were the original Luke and Laura. Married Burt Pugach "loved" Linda Riss so much that he had a hitman throw lye in her eyes when she ended their affair, rendering her blind. After spending 14 years in the slammer for the attack, he eventually persuaded her to marry him -- he promised to buy her a Seeing Eye dog for Christmas(!) -- in one of the most bizarre romances of all time, chronicled in the documentary "Crazy Love." Read her New York Times obituary HERE.
