Anoth­er young tal­ent lost too soon. Austin Majors, the for­mer child star best known for his role on the hit dra­ma NYPD Blue, died at just 27 from an acci­den­tal fen­tanyl over­dose, Scan­dals­Mag has learned exclusively.

This heart­break­ing news con­firms the worst fears about yet anoth­er Hol­ly­wood drug death. Sad­ly, fen­tanyl has become an epi­dem­ic, killing scores of celebri­ties and dev­as­tat­ing families.

Once a ris­ing star who charmed audi­ences on NYPD Blue, ER, and more, Majors saw his career fade over the last decade as he strug­gled with addic­tion. His trag­ic over­dose occurred at a Los Ange­les home­less hous­ing facil­i­ty in Feb­ru­ary, though the cause was only just confirmed.

Majors looked des­tined for great­ness after star­ring in 48 episodes of NYPD Blue along­side Denis Franz in the late 90s. But when star­dom dried up, so did oppor­tu­ni­ties to stay sober and healthy.
