Before Jason Voorhees went on his first killing rampage in Friday the 13th Part 2, it was Pamela Voorhees the original serial killer in the franchise. Played by American actress Betsy Palmer (pictured), she triggered Jason to be one of the most iconic killers in history. In a way, if Palmer never needed to purchase a car in 1980, which was her reason for taking her most famous role in Friday the 13th, the horror franchise most likely would have never turned out to be the way it is.
Unfortunetly, now we are extremely sad to report the legendary scream queen passed away on Friday, May 29, 2015, of natural causes at a hospice care center in Danbury, Connecticut. Brad Lemack, her longtime manager confirmed the news on Sunday.
Palmer was 88. R.I.P.
