Logan Williams' Mom Reveals The Cause of His Death at Age 16

Logan Williams‘ mom is opening up about the cause of his sad death at just age 16.

Marlyse Williams spoke to the New York Post about her son, who starred as a young Barry Allen on The CW’s The Flash, and revealed that he passed away due to a fentanyl overdose.

“His death is not going to be in vain,” she shared with the paper, while opening up about his addiction. “He’s going to help a lot of people down the road.”

Marlyse revealed that she found out that he was using marijuana when acting became “way too stressful” and he also went to rehab to combat his addiction.

Logan was “in complete denial because he was so ashamed” and she had done “everything humanly possible — everything a mother could do. I did everything but handcuff him to me to try to keep him safe.”

“We didn’t want people to know because of the judgment, because of the embarrassment, because of the criticism. We wanted it to go away,” she adds.

Marlyse last saw Logan on March 30, just days before it was revealed he had died.

Logan also starred on Supernatural and Hallmark’s When Calls The Heart.

Melissa Etheridge also lost her own son, Beckett Cypher, to drug addiction this week. See what she shared about his passing here.
