Sharon Stone has been left devastated in the wake of her nephew’s death, US Magazine reveals this Thursday, November 20, in their celebrity news report. Stone is said to be in immense grief after Colin Stone, her nephew of only 22 years, is dead due to a possible drug overdose. It has not been confirmed, but at least one source has speculated a heroin overdose may be behind his passing.
Celebrity deaths due to drug overdoses never cease to be tragic, but Sharon Stone devastated over the loss of her nephew has caused the crisis to truly hit home this Thanksgiving season. The blonde actress is said to be mourning 22-year-old Colin’s death, along with the rest of the Stone family. Heroin is believed to be the drug he may have been using.
The young man — Colin is the son of Sharon’s brother, Michael — was stated in the police report to be found dead in his Hollywood apartment in mid-November. A manager of Stone’s apartment complex was visiting him as part of a routine “welfare check” after not seeing or hearing of the tenant for several days. Ed Winter, a spokesperson for the County Coroner’s Office in Los Angeles County, noted that his death was cited as a potential drug overdose. However, nothing has been confirmed yet.
“His death was recorded as a possible overdose, pending toxicology reports,” said Winter. No other public statements have been provided at this time.
According to coverage provided by Radar Online News this morning, Sharon Stone is devastated at learning of her nephew’s death. The celebrity insider was the first media outlet to report that Colin’s passing may have resulted due to his using the drug heroin in particular, with the source asserting: “the death was believed to be a heroin overdose.”
Sharon Stone, now 56, is a well-known American celebrity and popular actress. She was said to be on the film set with John Travolta preparing for a new movie, “Life on the Line,” when she heard the saddening news. Now, she is said to be absorbing the tragedy of the situation and has been left in grief with the rest of her family.
“Years ago, she helped Colin’s dad – her brother, Michael – get his life back on track after serving time for selling [drugs],” the source shared with Radar Online, referring to the celebrity’s brother, now 63, who served two years in jail for “possession of a kilo of cocaine … Michael was able to escape a life of drugs. Unfortunately, his son was not so lucky.”
The toxicology reports for the victim are slated to be made public sometime next week, which will reveal whether a drug overdose was the cause of the 22-year-old’s death. Thoughts and prayers go out to a devastated Sharon Stone and the rest of Colin Stone’s family and friends this Thursday evening.
