The daytime community is sending love and support to General Hospital stars Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco Jones) and Kristina Wagner (Felicia Jones), who are mourning the death of their son Harrison, who has passed away at the age of 27.
An L.A. County case report reveals that Harrison was found dead in a parking lot in Los Angeles on Monday, June 6. His cause of death is currently being investigated by a medical examiner.
Back in 2016, Jack revealed that Harrison suffered from drug and alcohol addiction. "I fear for my youngest son's safety," the actor shared at the time. "Harrison has struggled with drugs and alcohol just as I did when I was younger. He's relapsed and is MIA five days." Fortunately, Harrison got in touch later that same day.
More recently, Harrison was keeping busy as an actor, DJ, and music producer. He made a few posts on social media in recent months that showed him spending time with his family.
Jack and Kristina Wagner met on the set of General Hospital and married each other in 1993. The pair divorced in 2006, but they've continued to co-parent Harrison. The pair shares another son, Peter, who was born in 1990.
General Hospital's executive producer, Frank Valentini, took to Twitter to share that the cast and crew's "hearts go out to Kristina Wagner, Jack, and their family during this devastating time." Valentini asked that others "respect their privacy and keep them in your thoughts."
On behalf of myself and the entire #GH family, our hearts go out to Kristina Wagner, Jack, and their family during this devastating time. We ask that you respect their privacy and keep them in your thoughts.— Frank Valentini (@valentinifrank) June 8, 2022
Several GH stars posted broken heart emojis on Twitter with no additional comment. None were needed.
UPDATE (June 8, 2022): In a statement, the L.A. Coroner's Office said that the cause of Wagner's death is deferred. "Deferred means that after an autopsy, a cause of death has not been determined and the medical examiner is requesting more investigation into the death, including additional studies. Once the tests/studies come back, the doctor evaluates the case again and makes the cause of death determination," the statement concluded.
