He was only 9.
Just a week before the premier of his new television show, rising television star Young Sheldon has died from a heroin overdose.
Sheldon was found backstage at The Cobra Lounge, a nightclub partially owned by Johnny Depp; he was allegedly there to perform a set with his band. Responders pronounced him dead on the scene.
“It’s just a tragedy,” said longtime friend and bandmate P-Nut, formerly of 311, “There’s nothing more to say, it’s just a shame.”
Tragedy is right. Another talent lost to heroin.
