R.I.P. Actor Brad Renfro

Everyday something sad happens in the world but we don’t always know about it. Yesterday was a sad day; actor Brad Renfro was found dead in his home. According to TMZ:

The 25-year-old actor was found dead at his Los Angeles home this morning. The cause of death has not been determined, however, Renfro had a history of drug abuse.

Sources tell us Renfro, who had starring roles in “The Client” and “Apt Pupil” had been working valiantly to stay clean, especially since this summer. Renfro had been convicted of several drug offenses, including attempted heroin possession.

Renfro had been filming a movie with Winona Ryder and Billy Bob Thornton. The movie, “The Informers,” just wrapped.

Renfro has had a rough time personally since moving from Tennessee to Los Angeles. His parents split, and we’re told he did not have real guidance from adults as he tried navigating the treacherous movie industry.

Sadly, it seems like its drugs more time than not. Our condolences go out to his family. Rest in peace!
