Melvin Lane Powers, a flamboyant real estate developer who was acquitted of murdering his aunt's multimillionaire husband in a sensational 1966 trial, has died. He was 68. Powers died Oct. 8 at his Houston home, his family announced. The cause of death has not been released. He became a household name in the 1960s after he was accused with his aunt, Candace Mossler, of the stabbing and bludgeon slaying of her husband, 69-year-old Jacques Mossler, in a luxurious Key Biscayne, Fla., apartment.

On the shade inside his bathroom door, Mickey Rourke has scribbled his warrior credo. "I must be mentally and physically prepared so defeat does not exist in my mind and body.

The sense of loss was echoed across the country. The headline in the San Antonio Light ran above the masthead, in red type--complete with exclamation point. It read: THE KING IS DEAD! Some banners had a certain, well, ring. Like the one in the Washington Post's Style section: ALL SHOOK UP ON THE DAY THE '50s DIED. Time magazine went with LAST STOP ON THE MYSTERY TRAIN. The eclectic Village Voice had its readers reaching for the dictionary with THE WORLD'S MOST BELOVED SOLIPSIST IS DEAD.
