Renfro“The 25-year-old actor was found dead at his Los Angeles home this morning. The cause of death has not been determined, however, Renfro had a history of drug abuse. Sources tell us Renfro had been working valiantly to stay clean, especially since this summer. Renfro had been convicted of several drug offenses, including attempted heroin possession. Renfro had been filming a movie with Winona Ryder and Billy Bob Thornton. The movie, ‘The Informers,’ just wrapped. Renfro has had a rough time personally since moving from Tennessee to Los Angeles. His parents split, and we’re told he did not have real guidance from adults as he tried navigating the treacherous movie industry.”

The Hollywood Reporter: “Although an autopsy is planned for today or Thursday, results of a toxicology test to determine whether drugs were a factor in his death will take six to eight weeks. According to the Coroner’s Office, Renfro had been out drinking the night before with friends and was discovered unresponsive in the morning.”
