LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Moran's body was discovered Saturday afternoon after someone called 911 at 4:07 p.m.

The Harrison County Sheriff's Department reported the call was for "an unresponsive female."


The department explained: "Upon arrival, it was determined that the female was Erin Marie Moran-Fleischmann. First responders determined that she was deceased and an autopsy is pending."

Moran spent several years after "Happy Days" struggling with alcohol, a home foreclosure, a lawsuit with CBS and more.

Currently, her cause of death remains uncertain but Daily Mailsays one of Moran's neighbors claims she died "of a suspected heroin overdose. This news has yet to be substantiated.

Moran and her husband were reportedly living in a trailer in Salisbury, Indiana, where the opioid crisis is hitting residents hard, but again, there is no official report revealing Moran's cause of death.

The news hit friends and family hard, with many of her old "Happy Days" cast-mates taking to social media to share their sadness at the news of her tragic premature death.

Ron Howard Tweeted: "Such sad news. RIP Erin. I'll always choose to remember you on our show making scenes better, getting laughs and lighting up tv screens."

Henry Wrinkler also took to Twitter to write: "OH Erin...now you will finally have the peace you wanted so badly here on earth ...Rest in It serenely now.. too soon."


Don Most also wrote: "So incredibly sad to hear about Erin. A wonderful, sweet, caring, talented woman. I can't really comprehend this right now. Very painful loss."

There is no update on the autopsy or how Moran's family is handling her unexpected death. Please keep Moran and her family in prayer.
