Condolences poured in Saturday for “Happy Days” actress Erin Moran after reports said her body was found unresponsive by law enforcement officials in Indiana. However, Moran’s husband Steven Fleishmann has not yet publicly addressed her death.

Someone in Indiana informed authorities about an “unresponsive female,” according to TMZ. By the time emergency personnel arrived, Moran was already dead, the report added. The cause of her death remained unclear and authorities are awaiting autopsy results.

Moran rose to fame in the early 1970s for her role as Joanie Cunningham, the younger sister of Richie Cunningham in the popular "Happy Days" show. She also appeared in “Murder, She Wrote,” “Celebrity Fit Club” and “Desperation Boulevard.”

Her husband Fleishmann did not issue a statement over her death. Moran married Fleishmann in 1993 after divorcing her first husband Rocky Ferguson. The two do not have children together.

After “Happy Days,” Moran reportedly had a difficult time. Reports about the actress’ alcoholism also surfaced. Her drinking was reported to be the reason behind her living in a trailer park in Indiana along with Fleishmann, who stayed with her in her final years.

A few years back, rumors cropped up that the actress was homeless and separated from Fleishmann. However, those rumors remained unfounded.

Fleishmann and Moran reportedly faced troubled times and the two lost their California home to foreclosure in 2010.

A year before Moran lost the California house, she gave an interview to Xfinity, when she was working on her autobiography “Happy Days, Depressing Nights.”

“What happened with all of us was like we were this family,” Moran said about “Happy Days.” “It was so surreal with all the cast members…They were my family, get it?”

However, Moran did not appear to be keen about “Happy Days” spin-off “Joanie Loves Chachi.”

“I liked working with the people. But I didn’t even want to do it. I was talked into it,” Moran said at the time. “I wanted to stay on ‘Happy Days.’ They were running them at the same time.”
