Los Angeles: ‘Basic Instinct’ star Sharon Stone is mourning the loss of her 22-year-old nephew, Colin Stone, who died from a suspected heroin overdose earlier this month.
The 56-year-old actress is devastated after her older brother Michael Stone’s son, Colin Stone, was found dead in Los Angeles earlier this month from a suspected heroin overdose, reported Us magazine.
Stone’s family confirmed the tragic news in a statement, saying: “Colin was a wonderful talented son. Unfortunately he had an addiction bigger than himself. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers go out to all families coping with children facing addiction.”
A spokesperson for the LA County Coroner’s office said that Colin was found dead in his apartment in Hollywood on November 10 ‘during a welfare check by his apartment manager.’
His death was recorded as a ‘possible overdose, pending toxicology reports.’
Stone had just finished filming ‘Life on the Line’ with John Travolta when she got the news.
