Erin Moran, star of “Happy Days” passed away unexpectedly this past Saturday. Many suspected that her cause of death was drug related, as she did have a history of drug and alcohol abuse over the years.
The 56-year-old began her career on “Happy Days” as a child star, playing the character Joanie Cunningham. She was found dead in her home on Saturday, however no illegal drugs were found in her home with her. A toxicology test is in the works, but after an autopsy, doctors discovered that the most likely cause of death was related to stage-4 cancer she had been living with.
There haven’t been any further details yet, nor what type of cancer.
