Cody Longo, 'Days of Our Lives' and 'Hollywood Heights' Actor, Dead at 34

The actor's body was reportedly found Wednesday in Austin, Texas.

Cody Longo, an actor with roles in Days of Our Lives and the short-lived Nickelodeon family drama Hollywood Heights, has died. He was 34.

According to TMZ, which was first to report the news, Longo's body was found Wednesday in bed at a home in Austin, Texas. A family member also tells the outlet that Longo's wife, Stephanie, was at work at a local dance studio but called the police and asked them to go check on him when she got "an uneasy feeling" and couldn't reach him.

Cops ultimately rushed over to the home and kicked down the door when Longo wouldn't answer the door. The family member went on to tell the outlet that Longo struggled with alcohol abuse for years, and the family believes he relapsed, and alcoholism is likely the cause of death.

In a statement to ET, Stephanie says the family has been shattered by the tragedy.

"The babies and I are absolutely devastated. Cody was our whole world, we are shattered," she said. "He was the BEST dad and BEST father. We will always and forever miss him and love him. We had a beautiful marriage and 3 beautiful babies ages 7, 5 and 1."

The Austin Police Department tells ET that officers responded to a Check Welfare call on Feb. 7. Officers at the scene found Longo deceased inside a residence. Homicide Unit detectives responded to process the scene. After gathering details, investigators determined this incident to be a non-suspicious death. The manner and cause of death is still to be determined upon completion of autopsy, toxicology and the final ruling of the Travis County Medical Examiner.

According to his IMDB page, Longo is an American actor and musician who studied psychology and film at UCLA. That same bio says he was "a singer/songwriter who broke into the Billboard Top 100 charts in 2014 with his track 'She Said.'"

In 2012, he appeared in 78 episodes of Hollywood Heights playing rock star heartthrob Eddie Duran. In 2011, he appeared in eight episodes of Days of Our Lives. Some of his other TV credits include Brothers & Sisters and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
