THE son of General Hospital star Jack Wagner passed away on Monday June 6 at the age of 27.
According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Report, Harrison Wagner was pronounced dead at 5:14 a.m. in North Hollywood.
His body was found in an LA parking lot on Monday. The coroner requested further investigation after an autopsy.
Harrison was the youngest child of Wagner, 62. He also has an older son, Peter, 31, with ex-wife Kristina Wagner, to whom he was married for 13 years before divorcing in 2006.
Wagner also has a daughter, Kerry, 34, from a previous relationship.
Harrison struggled with addiction shortly before his death. In 2016, he made headlines when he disappeared after a relapse.
He had been vocal about his journey on social media, writing on Instagram: “Life is a rollercoaster ride. It’s all transformation and how we grow as humans to have the power and willingness to make a difference…. And remember, no matter what the past says about you or what you have done, there is ALWAYS room for forgiveness as long as you are willing to forgive YOURSELF.”
“It’s NEVER TOO LATE TO MAKE A CHANGE IN LIFE Let alone when you’re struggling, believe me… I was there. But we come out and see the world through a different lens.”
His last Instagram post was shared on May 22 with a now heartbreaking caption of positivity.
“Focus. YOU stay with YOU and your thoughts.”
Harrison’s death is just the latest tragedy to befall stars of the hit soap opera.
Earlier this year, Lindsey Pearlman, who also starred on Chicago Justice, was found dead in LA days after she was reported missing.
Pearlman’s cause of death was not released, but her death was confirmed by the Los Angeles Police Department and by her cousin, Savannah Pearlman.
In a tweet, Savannah Pearlman re-shared a missing persons poster from earlier in the week with a new comment.
“UPDATE: I am deeply saddened to report that they found Lindsey and it was too late,” Savannah Pearlman wrote.
“I have no further information about the location or the circumstances. Lindsey was a passionate animal rights activist and a talented actress.
“Please consider making a donation @SanteDOr in her honor.”
Lindsey has been reported missing
The Los Angeles Police Department released a statement by deadline at the time.
“Around 8:30 a.m. today, Hollywood-area officials responded to a pager for a death investigation at Franklin Avenue and North Sierra Bonita Avenue.
“The LA County Coroner’s Office has since confirmed that the individual is Lindsey Erin Pearlman.
“The cause of death will be determined by the coroner.”
Pearlman was last seen around 9 p.m. on February 15, according to her cousin. The family member stated that the date and time on the LAPD flyer was incorrect.
Her phone was reportedly last pinged on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
MOVED TO LA FOR ON-CAMERA OPPORTUNITIES
According to her website, Pearlman had recently moved to Los Angeles “to have more opportunities in front of the camera.”
Pearlman, a Chicago native, was a television actor who had recurring roles on Chicago Justice and General Hospital.
She has also appeared on Empire, ABC’s American Housewife, the television series The Purge and Sneaky Pete.
Her extensive advertising role includes commercials for TJ Maxx, Coors Light, Nissan, Sears and the Cincinnati Regional Tourism Alliance.
She is a graduate of the renowned Second City Conservatory in Chicago.
In addition to her theater performances in Chicago, Lindsey starred in Catharsis Productions’ internationally touring show Sex Signals.
According to Lindsey’s website, the show “uses comedy to address the difficult issue of sexual assault awareness on military bases and college campuses.”
FRIENDS & FAMILY GOT ‘BROKEN’
Her husband Vance Smith shared the news on his Instagram account.
“The police found Lindsey. She is gone. I’m exhausted.
“I’ll share more later, but I wanted to thank you all for your love and effort and ask that you respect your family’s privacy at this time.”
Elaine Hendrix, who famously played Meredith Blake on The Parent Trap, got to work Twitter to commemorate her deceased friend.
“UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who shared Lindsey’s missing person report. I am deeply saddened and stunned to report that she has been found dead.
“There is no further information to share at this time. Please send love to her friends and family.”
The investigations are ongoing.
