Gay Porn Performer 'Bobby Williams' Is Killed

Peter Rigali, a former gay adult film actor who performed under the name Bobby Williams, was killed in a car crash in Holyoke, Massachusetts this Sunday. 

Mass Live reports:

Police have identified the man who lost his life in an early Sunday-morning car crash on Route 141 as 31-year-old city resident Peter L Rigali. 

Police said Rigali was driving east on Route 141, also known as Easthampton Road, when his 2004 Nissan went off the right side of the road near the Interstate 91 Exit 17A off-ramp. The car vaulted a guardrail and broke a utility pole before coming to rest against a tree, according to Capt. Denise Duguay.

Rigali was ejected from the car, Duguay said. 

The accident was reported around 1 a.m. and Rigali was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. 

Duguay declined to say whether anyone else was in the car or whether Rigali was wearing a seat belt. Other aspects of the crash remained under investigation Monday.

Very sad. Our condolences to his friends and family.

Such a sad loss for a life cut short.  Rest in peace Peter.

I don't understand why gay men want to belittle a porn star, call them trash, make them feel like crap. What a bunch of HYPOCRITES. Does this make you feel better about yourself? Someone posted that everyone wished they could say they slept with a porn star. What if you were rejected? It sounds like most gay men are just out for an ego boost, and an opportunity to insult a lesser attractive gay man.

Rest in peace  ,i will miss you

I wondered what happened to him. My favorite scene was with Trevor Knight in Bed Head. He was very into his scene partners.

Rest in peace.

R.I.P.

May you rest in peace and live now in the grace of God

condolences to his family and friends

Honestly, all  of you can sit in judgment of "Unbelievable"'s comment all you want. The truth is:

1)you all wish you could make that claim; and

2)that's what all well-publicized sex workers are known for anyway ---their sexual history and/or prowess.

It's the very reason I have always been glad that my blogging and now other writing forms (mainly poetry) outdid my porn history. For besides that pretty face and body, what did "Bobby Williams" have to be remembered by? NOTHING OF REAL DEPTH.

This by no means lessens the fact that a human being died tragically. But all of you commenters should not sit in judgment of someone who made public the history with him that every time you saw Bobby Williams in a scene, you were wishing you could say the same.

again you are an ahole too

really and you're tasteless for the comment ! 

That's a pretty disgusting and disrespectful comment for someone who was tragically killed

we all deserve to be treated with respect and kindness no matter what

Wow what an insensitive thing to say about someone that just died.

Deepest sympathy from DC Dragqueen Stormy Vain and my entertainment business Eroticasy. Such a loss is felt by many, you will be truly missed

Yeah, fuck off. Hope your business fails you utter cunt.

shameless plug of your business under the guise of condolences.  People make me sick

May he be in the peaceful place of great light. May he know love. May he return when ready. May his journey take him to the best.

Amen and amen!!

Very sad.  My condolences to his family and friends.  I know very well that route and is one of the dangerous I have ever driven through.

I have a movie with an AWESOME scene between him and Brad Benton that is one of the best chemistry porn scenes I've ever seen. Very sad to hear this.

Wow so sad to hear that such a Great Young Guy has passed on. My thoughts & Prayers are going Bobby Williams aka Peter L Rigali

he was one of my fave performers not just because he was hot but because he was so verbal :)

R.I.P ...Condolences to the family

Godspeed, Peter. You left us too soon.

Kyle - I was in a car accident in Shutesbury on the S-Curves, my car slipped on the wet road, hit a tree, and bounced across the other side of the road to tumble upside down in the brush. Though I was wearing a seat-belt, it broke. Seat belts do not strap you in like a collision harness. 

R.I.P ...Condolences to the family and friends

May he rest in peace; he looked like a nice young man.

So very sad.

So very young.

RIP, young man.

So very sad. May he be in the arms of God. Im sure you will be missed by all.

Odd they won't say if was or wasn't wearing a seatbelt. Generally "ejected from the car" means it wasn't worn. I suppose they have to say that since it's officially under investigation.
