‘The Goldbergs’ actor Jackson Odell died of accidental drug overdose

Jackson Odell, of “Modern Family” and “The Goldbergs” fame, died of a drug overdose in a sober-living facility in June, a Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner report revealed Sunday.

Odell’s cause of death was ruled an “acute heroin and cocaine toxicity” and the manner was an accident, the coroner’s office announced. The 20-year-old actor was found unresponsive on June 8 at the facility in Los Angeles. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Odell had a history of heroin addiction. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office previously told Fox News that Odell was not in possession of any narcotics when he died.

“First responders did not find any drug paraphernalia or illegal drugs at the residence,” Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told Fox News in June.

In addition to his successful guest roles on hit TV series, Odell was a successful singer and songwriter. Prior to his death, he wrote several songs for the soundtrack to the 2018 film “Forever Your Girl.” He was reportedly in show business since the age of 12.
