Stephanie Rivero Speaks on Death of Michael Tylo

at . Comments

We have a follow-up to the tragic story involving the son of Hunter Tylo.

The day he died, Michael Tylo Jr. was in town to visit his girlfriend, Stephanie Rivero and take one last high school exam.

However, by 11:55 that night, Michael was pronounced dead after his fully clothed body was found in the backyard swimming pool. The cause of death? Accidental drowning following a seizure.

"The last time I heard his voice was Thursday [October 18] around 6 a.m.,” Rivero said to Us Weekly. "I was going to come over, but he told me he was tossing and turning all night. He couldn’t sleep, and when he doesn’t sleep, he gets seizures. I told him I’d call him in an hour. He said, ‘I love you.’ And I said, ‘I love you too."

Sadly, these two never saw each other. As she relayed to the magazine, Rivero remembers Michael’s sense of humor most of all.

“He was full of life and so funny. He didn’t even have to try. He just was.”
