The Goldbergs Star Jackson Odell's Cause Of Death Revealed

More information about Jackson Odell's passing has been released.

The Blast reports that Odell, who played Ari Caldwell on ABC's The Goldbergs, died of an accidental drug overdose. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner noted that both heroin and cocaine were found in the young actor's system.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Odell was found unresponsive in a sober living home in San Fernando Valley, Calif. on June 8, 2018. According to the Daily Mail, Odell had been trying to get clean before his untimely death. At the time, it was reported that "there were no signs of foul play." He was 20 years old.

After his death, Odell's family released a statement about his passing on Twitter. "He will always be a shining light and a brilliant, loving and talented soul. He had so much more to share," they said, in part. "Our family will always carry that truth forward. Our wish is that the rest of the world who knew and loved him does as well."

Besides his role in The Goldbergs, Odell also starred in two episodes of Modern Family as Ted Durkas and had appeared in film and TV projects including iCarly, Jessie, The Fosters, and Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. Odell was also a musician who'd written many songs for the 2018 movie Forever My Girl.

Following his passing, several of Odell's The Goldbergs co-stars grieved on social media. The series' star Sean Giambrone posted a photo of Odell on Twitter and wrote, "I am so sad. Just saw him a few weeks ago and it was so good to see him. He talked about his music and his plans." He went on, "So talented and one the sweetest most welcoming people I've ever met. I'm really going to miss that."

Goldbergs matriarch Wendi McLendon-Covey shared her condolences to Odell's family, writing, "Shocked to hear about the passing of Jackson Odell... we hadn't seen him for a while, but he was a bright, sweet soul."

AJ Michalka, who plays Lainey Lewis on the show, tweeted out, "Jackson Odell was way too young to pass." She continued, "Our Goldbergs family will miss him. RIP sweet Jackson. This is heartbreaking."
