• Harrison Wagner's body was discovered in a parking lot in Los Angeles
  • Jack Wagner had shared in 2016 that his son battled drug addiction
  • The autopsy is pending, no cause or manner of death was determined

“General Hospital” stars Jack and Kristina Wagner’s son, Harrison Wagner, was found dead Monday. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner reported that the 27-year-old was found unconscious at a parking lot in Los Angeles and was pronounced dead in North Hollywood, California at 5:14 a.m. local time.

According to the medical examiner’s report, the case has been “deferred pending additional investigation.” The autopsy of the body is still pending and no cause or manner of death has been determined, but the medical examiner has requested a further investigation of the case.

Jack has yet to release a statement about the sudden death of his son. He and his “General Hospital” co-star and ex-wife Kristina split in 2006 after 13 years of marriage and are also parents to another son, Peter.

In July 2016, the 62-year-old actor revealed in a tweet that his son Harrison had gone missing after a relapse. “I’m going to ask those who want to share their fears, addictions & struggles to do so w/me via Twitter. We can face them 2gether, I’ll start,” the wrote.

“I fear for my youngest son’s safety. Harrison has struggled w drugs & alcohol just as I did when I was younger. He’s relapsed & is MIA 5 days,” he continued.

A few days later, the “Sealed with a Kiss: Wedding March 6” star revealed that his son had reached out following his tweet. “Harrisons been in touch. He’s 21 & in charge of his life, ty for the lv & prayers, please continue to share your struggles, it helps us all,” he wrote at the time.

Since then, Harrison has been regularly sharing posts about his recovery and journey towards a drug-free life. “Life is a roller coaster,” he wrote in an Instagram post in September 2021. “It is all transformation and how we grow as humans to have the power and willingness to make a change… And remember, no matter what the past says about u or what you did there’s ALWAYSSS room for forgiveness as long as u are willing to forgive YOURSELF.”

“IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO MAKE A CHANGE IN ONES LIFE let alone if u are struggling believe me… I’ve been there. But we come out on the other seeing the world through a different lens,” he had written.
