Male model Eric Zentner, who appeared in a Versace campaign, modeled for Louis Vuitton, and had a role in Katy Perry's "Hot n Cold" music video was killed last Saturday in what police are calling a hit-and-run. ABC7 reports: "Early Saturday, Zentner was on his way to visit his mother in the Sacramento area when he ran out of gas near Buellton. The California Highway Patrol said he got out, started walking and was hit. Authorities found pieces of plastic and light blue paint at the scene believed to belong to a light blue Dodge Caravan." The driver of the vehicle has not come forward.
