Morgan Stevens, the iconic television actor who has been in many prominent shows from the 80s and 90s, passed away at the age of 70.

According to the report by TMZ, a source told the outlet that a neighbor called the authorities to check on Stevens. As he had not been seen around in the neighborhood for a couple of days, the neighbor called for a wellness check.

Stevens was unfortunately found in his home’s kitchen. He was pronounced dead by the authorities. Their initial consensus is that he passed away due to natural causes, as there are no suspicions for any foul play at hand.

Morgan faced police brutality allegedly back in the 90s. While he was arrested for a DUI, he claimed that he had to wait an hour and a half in a jail cell. When he refused to give back a shirt he was given, two jailers brutally assaulted him and left him with his nose broken, cheek fractured, jaw dislocated and some nerve damage. The actor then sued the authorities and his case was settled outside of the court.

The actor is most fondly remembered for his work in ‘Melrose Place.’ Others of his iconic acting appearances include “A Year in the Life,” and most prominently on the show “Fame,” where he appeared as teacher David Reardon for two complete seasons. R.I.P.
