The official cause of death of former child actor Evan Ellingson has finally been revealed. It was an overdose of fentanyl. The sheriff-Coroner Department of San Bernardino completed their investigation and informed TMZ that the actor passed from an accidental overdose of fentanyl. His death is being treated as an accident.
He was discovered dead in his room on November 5 in a sober living home in the county of San Bernardino. Officials mentioned back then that they did not suspect any foul play, and law enforcement also discovered paraphernalia at the scene of death.
The police were looking at the case as a possible OD, and the toxicology and autopsy report revealed that it was actually fentanyl that caused the death. Even though Evan had a bad history with drugs and struggled a lot with them, this time, he was actually getting better.
His family mentioned, “He was passionate about pointing individuals to resources for help and only recently relapsed after being prescribed opioids following a dental procedure. In the end, he fell in his earthly battle with addiction.”
His family remembered his “smile that could light up a room” and said he “was always thinking of others and wanted to use his own struggles with addiction to help people find hope.”
He was popular for his role opposite to Cameron Diaz in the 2009 movie, “My Sister’s Keeper,” where he played her son. Ellingson is also remembered for his recurring role on “CSI Miami” as Kyle Harmon, which aired in 18 episodes. He started his Hollywood career back when he was just 13 and died at the age of 35. He did not appear in any TV shows or movies after 2010.
