Brad Renfro died yesterday at a Los Angeles apartment where he spent the night with friends. The actor was 25.
Craig Harvey, chief investigator for the Los Angeles county coroner, told People that Renfro was heard snoring overnight, but found not breathing later Tuesday morning. His friends called 911 and paramedics declared him dead at the scene at approximately 9 a.m.
Brad Renfro died at the young age of 25.
A cause of death was not immediately determined, but Renfro had a lifetime of drug problems.
For that reason, drug overdose is a "possibility considering his history, but right now all we have is the history of his drinking the previous night," Harvey said. "All that we have is that he was last known to be alive during the morning hours and he was snoring."
Renfro was most recognized for his roles in The Client and Apt Pupil. He had recently completed a movie with Winona Ryder and Billy Bob Thornton.
