The shocking news spread across media outlets, surpassing the soap opera genre and right into mainstream news.
General Hospital news reports confirmed the death of son of two General Hospital stars. Jack and Kristin Wagner lost their son, Harrison (27), on June 6th.
In his honor, his parents have created a scholarship fund in his memory. As described by the New Life House Recovery Committee, the fund is set to accept donations, helping young men in recovery. “Harrison was a bright, exuberant young man whose smile lit up any room he was in. He has left behind many men and family members who loved him deeply. We are heartbroken that he ultimately lost his battle with addiction and we hope that Harrison’s memory will live on through this scholarship and will help other young men get help for their addiction that would not otherwise be able to afford it.”
Harrison was survived by his two parents, his older brother Peter, and half sister on his paternal side, Kerry.
General Hospital news and spoilers reveal more details surrounding his unfortunate death. Harrison had a long history with substance abuse, as disclosed by his father Jack in a 2016 tweet. The actor admitted his son was struggling just as he had in his past. At the time Harrison had gone missing for 5 days when Jack reached out on Twitter. Fast forward to June of 2022, and the details of his death have begun to unfold.
According to Los Angeles Medical Examiner’s explanation, Wagner’s time of death was 5:14 a.m. He was found in a parking lot in the 11200 block of Chandler Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley suburb of North Hollywood. Following an exam, an official cause of death has since been “deferred” pending additional investigation. According to Fox News Digital, the LA Medical Examiner is requesting further investigation after the exam results returned as “deferred.”
All donations to the Harrison Wagner fund will be directly used to help men who can not afford assistance when trying to recover from substance abuse.
Please keep the Wagner family in your thoughts and prayers.
