Actress Theresa Saldana died of an unknown illness Monday, TMZ reports. Saldana, 61, was known for her roles in the Robert DeNiro film “Raging Bull” and on television in the ’90s cop drama “The Commish,” for which she won a Golden Globe nomination. Saldana also was notably stabbed by a deranged fan in the early 1980s, and she helped bring the crime of stalking to the public’s awareness.
