We're sad to report the passing of Hunter Tylo's son last night.

As reported by, Michael Tylo, Jr drowned and was pronounced dead at 11:55. Michael went by the nickname Mickey.

The police were initially called to the house at 10:18 p.m. to respond to a report of a deceased male in a pool. We'll have more on the investigation as it progresses.

"We are doing a toxicology report, but that is standard with all bodies that come to us," said coroner Michael Murphy. "That information won't be available for several weeks. With this already having a cause of death, like a medical condition, it appears pretty evident that this is reason for him falling in the pool."

This isn't the tragedy to strike the actress' children: Hunter's youngest daughter, Katya, was diagnosed with retinablastoma and has had her eye removed.

Our best wishes go out to the family of this star from The Bold and the Beautiful.
