Jansen Panettiere, 28, was found, according to recent reports concerning the tragic and untimely death of the actor. When Jansen skipped a meeting, his pals allegedly found his body, according to TMZ.
After Jansen failed to show up for a scheduled business meeting, his friends reportedly “raced to his home,” according to reports. One of Jansen’s friends visited him at home and upon finding him “sitting erect in a chair, unresponsive, contacted 911 and started CPR,” the buddy described the situation.
The police spoke with Jansen and Hayden Panettiere’s father, Skip, according to the police report, which TMZ obtained. Skip stated he spoke with his son the night before Jansen’s death and acknowledged Jansen sounded “good.” His cause of death has not yet been determined.
Jansen Panettiere, Hayden Panettiere’s younger brother, reportedly died at the age of 28 according to heartbreaking reports. TMZ reports that Jansen’s body was discovered at a New York residence.
On February 20, there was no indication of wrongdoing. Unfortunately, it is now unknown what caused his passing.
Law police was called to the New York home on Sunday night about 5:30 p.m., according to TMZ. It’s unknown if Jansen received life-saving treatment or if he had already passed away by the time emergency personnel arrived.
Jansen is an actor, just like his sister. The brother-sister team even collaborated on a number of early projects, such as Tiger Cruise and Racing Stripes.
While Jansen seems to have left Hollywood a few years ago, his social media accounts show that he was apparently interested in abstract art and fashion design.
Jansen shared a selfie of himself and Hayden on Instagram just three weeks ago. In the sepia photograph, Hayden is seen giving her younger brother a haircut.
“Not the first haircut she’s tried to give me,” Jansen captioned the photo. Hayden liked the post. It appears as though the siblings were close.
Hayden has been speaking up more and more about her own battles with addiction as well as her responsibilities as the mother of a lovely young daughter. Their daughter is currently under the custody of Hayden’s ex-husband.
She said that in 2018, she was battling an alcohol and drug addiction at the time she signed up custody of her daughter. Giving up custody, in Panettiere’s opinion, was the best course of action for Kaya.
“The best thing for my daughter was to make sure she was okay, take care of myself, and make sure I could be a good mom to her. And sometimes that means letting go.”
Our hearts ache as we watch the Panettiere family struggle during this trying time.
