The former actor had just begun his Freshman year at the university, and had not been involved in television and film for some years prior to his death. His last professional acting role was in the 2016 TV movie, Chad: An American Boy, but his resume also featured appearances in several shorts, and a small role in the soap opera As the World Turns in 2009.

There is currently no update from law enforcement on the cause of death, or whether or not there was foul play involved.
