Ryan, friend Alana Stewart, hairdresser Mela Murphy and her doctor Lawrence Piro were at Fawcett's side when she died, People Magazine reports.

Fawcett's family did not request for Redmond to be released from jail when his mother was near death, the network reports citing the LAPD representative.

“As of right now, there has been no request to release Redmond so he remains in jail,” the representative was quoted as saying according to Fox News Thursday.

Redmond O'Neal has been jailed since April 5, when he was allegedly caught with heroin.

The actress battled cancer for three years. In September 2006, Fawcett began to feel over exhausted and she was diagnosed with anal cancer.
