Actor De’Angelo Wilson was found dead from an apparent suicide, AllHipHop.com reports.
De’Angelo—remembered for his roles in such films as Antwone Fisher, 8 Mile and The Salon—had apparently hung himself on November 26. Police say they found his body in the back room of a Los Angeles business.
AllHipHop.com reports that it took authorities a week to locate De’Angelo’s family and inform them of his untimely death. Once his mother found out, she said she didn’t have the money to bring De’Angelo’s body home to Dayton, Ohio. Graciously, some of the actor’s friends stepped up to cover the cost.
No further details on his death have been released at this time.
