25 August 1978 - 9 July 2006
the earlier hoax about Jaleel White, the above-quoted account of a young TV star's death was spread through the online world via an e-mail forward passed from inbox to inbox, this one apparently originating with the MySpace social networking site.
In this instance, 27-year-old actor Kel Mitchell, popularly known for his work on Nickelodeon's comedy/variety show All That and his portrayal of Kel Kimble on the 1996-2000 Nickelodeon series Kenan & Kel, was said to have died of "unknown causes" during the night on 9 July 2006.
However, several days after the young actor's putative death, nary a mention of his supposed passing has appeared in any news outlets, and (similar to the case of another Nickelodeon star, Blue's Clues host Steve Burns) unfounded rumors about the demise of Kel Mitchell (and his Kenan & Kel co-star, Kenan Thompson) have been circulated before.
It appears safe to chalk this one up as yet another Internet-spread celebrity death hoax.
