“The family has unequivocally confirmed that this is not a suicide. Any suggestion to the contrary is absolutely, 100% unfounded," he said.

This is what she said:

I just received news that my dear friend, actress Lisa Sheridan, has passed away. She was found Monday morning.

I am sitting here stunned. Lisa and I filmed a movie together 5 years ago and became very close on set and remained close friends after filming ended.

It’s so rare to find kind, gentle souls like hers in this industry, this city...even this world. Truly one of the most genuinely sweet and gentle people I’ve ever come across in my life.

She brought a sweetness and bright energy to any room she happened to walk into...even in her darker times.

I am devastated by this loss. I had just spoken with her and everything seemed great and she seemed happy and in good spirits.

Everyone who knew her loved and adored her. Goodbye and goodnight sweet angel...I will miss you terribly. Please send up prayers for her family.
