Harrison’s death is just the latest tragedy befalling stars of the hit soap opera.

Earlier this year, Lindsey Pearlman, who also appareled on Chicago Justice, was found dead in LA days after being reported missing.

Pearlman's cause of death has not been released, but her death was confirmed by the Los Angeles Police Department and by her cousin, Savannah Pearlman.

In a tweet, Savannah Pearlman re-shared a missing person poster from earlier in the week, with new commentary.

"UPDATE: I'm deeply sad to report that they have found Lindsey, and it was too late," Savannah Pearlman wrote.

"I have no other information about the location or circumstance. Lindsey was a fierce animal advocate and a talented actress.

"Please consider a donation to @SanteDOr in her honor."


The Los Angeles Police Department released a statement, per Deadline at the time.

“Today around 8:30 a.m., Hollywood Area officers responded to a radio call for a death investigation at Franklin Avenue and North Sierra Bonita Avenue.

"The L.A. County Coroner’s Office has since confirmed the individual to be Lindsey Erin Pearlman.

"The cause of death will be determined by the coroner.”

Pearlman was last seen February 15 at around 9pm, according to her cousin. The family member stated the date and time are listed incorrectly on the LAPD's flyer.

Reports allege her phone was last pinged on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.


According to her website, Pearlman had recently moved to Los Angeles "in pursuit of more on-camera opportunities."

Pearlman, a Chicago native, was a TV actor who had recurring roles on Chicago Justice and General Hospital.

She has also appeared on Empire, ABC's American Housewife, The Purge television series, and Sneaky Pete.

Her extensive commercial reel includes ad spots for TJ Maxx, Coors Light, Nissan, Sears and the Cincinnati Regional Tourism Alliance.

She is a Chicago graduate of the acclaimed Second City Conservatory.

Along with her theatrical appearances in Chicago, Lindsey acted in the internationally-touring show Sex Signals by Catharsis Production.

According to Lindsey's website, the show "uses comedy to broach the difficult topic of sexual assault awareness at military bases and college campuses."


Her husband, Vance Smith, shared the news on his Instagram account.

"The police found Lindsey. She's gone. I'm broken.

"I will share more later, but I wanted to thank you to everyone for their love and efforts and ask you to respect the privacy of her family at this time."

Elaine Hendrix, who famously played Meredith Blake in The Parent Trap, took to Twitter to pay tribute to her late friend.

"UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who shared Lindsey’s missing person report. I’m deeply saddened & stunned to share that she was found deceased.

"There’s no further info to share at this time. Pls send her friends & family love."

The investigation is ongoing.
