The deaths of Sarah Burke and Etta James, while incredibly tragic and sad, put Steve and Duke on the board in the KLAQ Morning Show 2012 dead pool.

Sarah Burke, Etta James

While the news is awful, the KLAQ Morning Show's Dead Pool was set earlier in the week, and Steve from 600 ESPN El Paso was the only one to put Sarah on his list, earning him 71 points.

Soul singer Etta James passed away today, giving the Duke of Death 27 points in the Dead Pool. CNN reported that Etta James, 73, died from complications of leukemia.

Our best wishes go out to Sarah and Etta's families. Check out some photos in honor of her career below.
