Actor Known For His Roles On Nickelodeon, ‘Days of Our Lives’ Dies At 34
According to his representative, Alex Gittelson, Longo had taken some time away from acting to pursue a music career, but he planned to return to acting in 2023. Unfortunately, that won’t happen.
On Wednesday February 15, 2023, Longo’s wife, Stephanie Clark, was unable to reach her husband while she was at work, and that gave her an uneasy feeling. She decided to ask the police to check on him.
Longo didn’t answer the door when the police arrived at the residence in Austin, Texas, so they kicked the door down. They found Longo in bed. He was dead. He was only 34 years old.
There is no official time of death or cause of death that has been released yet, but a family member who spoke to TMZ believes that his death could have been alcohol related. According to the source, he spent the summer in rehab. It’s possible he relapsed.
TMZ also spoke to Longo’s wife who called him “an amazing father and the best husband.” She said, “Our whole world is shattered.”
In a statement from Clark that was shared by Gittelson, Clark shared, “Cody was our whole world. The kids and I are shattered and beyond devastated. He was the best dad and husband. We will always and forever miss you and love you.”
