American actor Michael K. Williams was on Monday found dead by his nephew in his Brooklyn apartment in New York City.
While the cause of his death has not been confirmed, the police believe he died of a possible drug overdose as drug paraphernalia was discovered in the apartment.
Best known for starring in ‘The Wire’ TV series, Williams’ passing from apparent drug overdose is not surprising as he had openly spoken about his past struggles with addiction and had told US media that he had spent much of his earnings from The Wire on narcotics.
May his soul rest in peace.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family in these difficult times!
