Actor Jackson Odell died of accidental drug overdose in sober living facility, coroner says

Actor Jackson Odell’s cause of death was revealed.

The 20-year-old died from an overdose in a sober living facility where he sought treatment, according to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner. The coroner’s report ruled Odell’s death an accident resulting from “acute heroin and cocaine toxicity.”

The toxicology report confirmed speculation that narcotics were involved. Odell “had a history of heroin addiction,” Ed Winter, assistant chief of investigations at the coroner’s office, told USA TODAY.

Odell was found unresponsive June 8 at the facility, where he was in treatment, the coroner’s office said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The actor played Zeke in the 2011 film “Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer,” based on the Megan McDonald children’s book series, and had a recurring role in the ABC sitcom “The Goldbergs” as Ari Caldwell. He appeared in episodes of “Modern Family” and “Arrested Development.”

He died a month before turning 21.
