Erin Moran autopsy results confirm cancer as sole cause of death

Erin Moran autopsy results confirm cancer as sole cause of death

The Los Angeles Times said the former child star, who also appeared in the short-lived "Happy Days" spinoff "Joanie Loves Chachi", struggled with substance abuse earlier in her life, leading to speculation that it might have played a cause in her death.

An autopsy report released Tuesday - which included toxicology results as well - indicated that no illegal drugs were involved in her death. According to Harrison County authorities, the actress was suspected of succumbing to complications from stage 4 cancer.

Tony Moran, 59, told The Sun he initially thought that the death came suddenly only to find out later that she died of cancer.

The 56-year-old Happy Days star died at her home in IN on 22 April (17), and according to a final autopsy report from the Harrison County Coroner's office, her passing was triggered by her battle with squamous cell carcinoma. In an open letter, he wrote: "It got so bad so fast".

At one point, she needed a feeding tube to eat, Fleischmann wrote.

She died at her trailer park home in New Salisbury, Indiana, where she lived with her husband Steve Fleischmann and mother-in-law.

He added: "She was still happy, she was active, she texted people on her phone all day".

Steve, who Wednesday Erin in 1993, went on to reveal he was right by her side when she passed on. "I fell asleep, woke up about an hour later still holding her hand, and she was gone, she was just gone". She had several years of experience when she was cast in 1974 in Happy Days as Joanie, the kid sister to high school student Richie Cunningham, played by Ron Howard.

A Burbank, Calif. native, Moran began acting in TV and movies before she was 10 years old.

In 2012, she along with her co-stars pursued a case against Happy Days in suing the sit-com's maker CBS over merchandising payments and won a settlement of £506,000 each.
