  • Patrick Leach, son of 'Barney and Friends' creator Sheryl Leach, was arrest for allegedly killing his neighbor in Malibu.

First Elmo and now this: The son of the woman who created that purple blight known as Barney has been arrested for allegedly murdering someone in Malibu.

According to The Acorn website, Patrick Leach, 27, son of Sheryl Leach, is accused of shooting a 49-year-old man. So far there’s no motive, but all you need to do is hum “I love you, you love me, we’re a happy family …” and you might find the smoking gun.

What’s next, Thomas the Tank Engine goes off the rails and hits the red-light district? Dora the Explorer becomes a drug mule for the Zetas?
