Cody Longo, who played Sami Brady on Days of Our Lives, passed away at age 34.
TMZ claims that the soap star’s body was found by police on Wednesday in a bed at an Austin, Texas, home.
When Stephanie Longo became concerned about her husband’s whereabouts, she reportedly called the police to request a welfare check.
The actor gained recognition in 2011 for his guest role as Nicholas Alamain on the hit soap opera.
His worried wife, who works at a nearby dance studio, assumed the worst when she couldn’t get in touch with him. He is thought to have struggled with alcoholism.
When Longo didn’t answer when police arrived, they kicked through the door. His body was discovered in his bedroom.
An actor’s relative revealed to TMZ that the star had been in rehab for alcohol addiction.
Authorities still haven’t determined what killed him.
Apparently, his wife gushed on the site about how wonderful of a parent he was and how wonderful of a husband he was. Everything we knew is now clouded….
The actor leaves behind a wife, a daughter, 7, a son, 5, and a baby son, 1.
Longo, who was born on March 4, 1988, in Littleton, Colorado, first gained attention by participating in a number of music videos. His cinematic debut came in the form of the feature film Ball Don’t Lie (2008).

In subsequent years, the late performer appeared in a number of films, including minor roles in Fame and Bring It On: Fight to the Finish.
Subsequently, he was seen in multiple episodes of the teen drama Make It Or Break It, in which he played the role of Nicky Russo.
As Nicholas Alamain, Longo was featured in eight episodes of Days of our Lives in 2011.
Erik von Detten and Victor Webster have previously portrayed the role.
Two episodes of CSI: NY from that same year also featured the performer.
The family drama series Hollywood Heights was the actor’s longest-running part, beginning in its pilot season in 2002 and ending in 2012.
In the sitcom, Longo starred as Eddie Duran, and he was seen in 78 out of the show’s 80 episodes. He co-starred with Brittany Underwood and Melissa Ordway.
After the series ended, the actor went on to play supporting roles on other TV shows like Nashville and Secrets and Lies.
Several films followed the show’s cancellation, with him starring roles in films like Rich Boy, Rich Girl, The Last Movie Star, and Death House.
Starting Up Love, which came out in 2019, was Longo’s most recent film role.
In 2020, the actor will also be heard narrating the Apple Podcast series High School Crimes & Misdemeanors.
However, he was charged with domestic abuse the following year after an alleged altercation with his spouse.
After being accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl, Longo entered a guilty plea to a misdemeanor assault charge in 2021.
The actor has just started filming the David Moreton-directed feature Do You Want to Die in Indio?
