  10. Trish says – reply to this



  11. andrea says – reply to this


    just wondering how they decide if it is an "accident" or not. people who have access to large quantities of drugs at all times probably know their limit, and should know what is lethal . . . .

    Such a beautiful talented guy. You have to wonder where he'd be if the casting agent hadn't pulled him out of his small town to star in The Client…..probably a happy guy leading a nice average life. The entertainment business isn't as easy or exciting as it seems…..

  17. Daenerys says – reply to this


    ummm, you spelled his name wrong…you should fix that, very disrespectful

  33. Alexis says – reply to this


    That figures. A heroin-related death is never an "accident." Anyone messing with that shit is intentionally knocking on death's door.

  34. it's too bad says – reply to this


    it's a bummer that brad renfro died right around the time heath ledger did, kind of like when mother teresa died right around the time princess di did…the less famous (but equally worthy) people totally get forgotten. :( rest in peace, brad.

  35. Rachel says – reply to this


    He was extremely talented and was so underrated…And he threw is all away.


  36. thegirl says – reply to this


    its sad you can't spell his name right

  41. Ben says – reply to this


    I guess he doesn't get the protection and cover up that Heath Ledger got.

  42. stephanie says – reply to this


    Re: andrea

    they determine it was an accident if there was no suicide note

  46. rekralc says – reply to this


    Yeah…. fix his name out of respect.

    renro = renfro

    I'm sure you didn't do it on purpose my love.

  47. Darice says – reply to this


    Ummm who is he?

  48. Darice says – reply to this


    By the way what do drug users think the end result of their habit is. Wake up! Get help!

  49. Amapola says – reply to this


    When something got you, it got you forever. No matter if its alkohol, or harder illegal stuff.

  50. Trin says – reply to this


    Could someone please tell me how a person "accidentally" overdoses on heroin????

  51. dumbass says – reply to this


    That old heroin bit ya in the ASS didnt?!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA….what a dumbass!

  52. VALERIE says – reply to this


    I had to google him cuz I had no idea who this is

  53. mishy says – reply to this


    God, I just feel sick right now. I know how he struggled to get and stay clean. All it takes is one time…Initially I read that he didn't have any needle marks in his arms and I was hopeful. RIP Brad. Drugs kill…and I'm so sorry they killed you. We all lost a real talent the day you died…

  54. fake bitches says – reply to this


    so it must be standard that if you die by drugs, it is an accident. but if you die by thing like, jumping, gunshot, running into traffic etc…..it's always suicide. hmmmm. this seems like a good way to get over on the insurance companies and still check yourself out.

  55. elle says – reply to this


    that's so sad.

  56. dr. phil says – reply to this


    Re: Trin – it's not that hard, actually. considering that heroin is cut differently depending on who's selling it, you never know exactly what you're getting. actually, not too long ago some rich white girls in NYC died along with some less note-worthy folks for doing too much heroin that was virtually uncut. because people get use to using drugs, often it takes more and more to get high. they may take too much thinking it's been cut when it hasn't and then they die.

  57. green card lover says – reply to this


    Re: Alexis – you sound like an idiot.

  58. AshBone says – reply to this


    Re: mogul

    baaahahah! that's soo bad but so funny and true.

  59. Idiot says – reply to this


    Its Renfro ….. perez come on you can atleast get his name rite cnt ya ?

  60. Rachel says – reply to this


    Re: andrea

    When someone refrains from drug use for a period of time and then use again often time they will use the same amount as previous to them. It was too much for him too handle at the time. So sad RIP Brad

  61. chad says – reply to this


    so sad - he was such a great actor

  62. dina says – reply to this


    hey perez, at least you could've spelled the poor guy's name right! It's renFro.

  63. Stef says – reply to this


    Re: Darice – Don't post unless you know what you are talking about. Heroin is a VERY hard addiction to break. The odds are against you always.

  64. wondering says – reply to this


    Is there anybody associated with Hollywood NOT ADDICTED THESE DAYS????

    Geez, it's getting quite sad. You're not "it" unless you are a living on the edge addict? Gimme a break…

  65. Someone who knows says – reply to this


    Re: Trin – How? They can get some that is a stronger batch than they are used to and they use too much of it and it kills them. You never know what you are getting until you use it.

  66. Someone who knows says – reply to this


    Re: dr. phil – Exactly Dr Phil. You nailed it.

  67. mad says – reply to this


    Perez I am very angry with you, because for the second time you use Brad's mug shot photo!! Come on this young man made close to 30 films and this is your only picture!! Then you misspell his last name come the fuck on!! Show some class! This is a sad situation and people need to be respectful of Brad and his family they are not only mourning the loss of Brad but also his grandmother that just past last week. RIP Brad you were a good friend

  68. ANNA NICOLE SMITH says – reply to this


    yeah perez fix his name.it's Renfro and change the photo.this was a mugshot and it shows lack of respect.poor kid ,to die like that.we have almost the same age,i'm 27 and i feel so sad when young people die especially from drugs.thankfully i never got in this shit.may God rest his soul!

    so unfortunate. his death is very sad.

  74. Alexis says – reply to this


    Re: green card lover – I stand 100% by what I said. I'm fucking tired of these Hollywood drug "tragedies" to the point where I'm losing sympathy. DRUGS ARE FUCKING EASY TO AVOID. Then again, I'm sure there's no use in explaining my point of view to someone who's probably a user. Good luck. When your time comes, tell Brad I say hi :)

  75. morgan says – reply to this


    oh my god - he was AMAZING as a child!!!!!!!!!!!! ONE OF MY FIRST CRUSHES…. only the good die young. the good and DRUGGED UP! maybe we should work on drug control. i mean WE ALL GRADUATE from the DARE program at school…but we're in 4th grade WE DONT CARE ABOUT DRUGS… the government needs to change the focus to high schools and college campuses…or just DONT FUCKING O.D. … so annoying … It's like when they make you watch RED ASPHALT before you get your license…and the class LAUGHS when the accidents happen….obviously a different approach is necessary to see some changes.

  76. D. says – reply to this


    OMG!!! He was gorgeous!!! Why wasn't his story on all the freakin papers! Heath's got nothin on him!! I know I know, both deaths are sad. So hott!! So sad!!! :(

  77. Jess says – reply to this


    This is so sad. Brad was my first celebrity crush as a kid, I loved him. I wish people could kick drugs easier, or never start doing them.

  82. roxy says – reply to this


    He was a good ,very underrated actor, poor guy. Not only was he underrated in life, but he also passed away the same week that poor Heath Ledger did….Irony. That's too bad. R.I.P. Brad.

  83. AWWW!!! says – reply to this


    He is so hot

  84. k says – reply to this

  88. TiredofJunkies says – reply to this


    Who the hell was this guy and why do I care if this dumbass od on heroin?

  89. Joey says – reply to this


    Are people retarded? Why are you asking why it is ruled an accident? There are only 4 "manner of death" options to pick from: accidental, homicide, suicide or natural. Clearly he did not fit into the homicide, natural or even suicide. The coroner would have to see INTENT that the OD victim INTENDED to kill themself to rule it SUICIDE.

    Seriously… Do you people use your brains? Sometimes I wonder about people. If someone drives drunk and kills themself - do you automatically think "SUICIDE"…

  90. amber says – reply to this


    Re: andrea – hey idiot, there is no proof that he committed suicide. So why else would it NOT be labeled an accident.

  91. judy says – reply to this


    Another great soul lost. You were such a great actor and I'm sorry you couldn't squash your inner demons. You will be missed, RIP.

  92. Jen says – reply to this


    I love Brad Renfro and I always will

  93. Caitlin says – reply to this


    Much too young. My uncle died the same way a few years ago. It is really only a matter of time until you go overboard or think you can handle more than you really can. You have more problems than substance abuse if you are low enough to stick a needle in your arm. Those of you calling him an "idiot" I hope to god you never experience addiction or loss of someone YOU love. You will NEVER understand.

  94. Lysette says – reply to this


    SCUMBAG! Good Riddance. Good luck on the other side. Hope you get the help you need.

    No worse than Heath

  98. Christina says – reply to this


    thanks..i was wondering what was happening with this.
    very sad.

  99. GOOD RIDDANCE says – reply to this


    I'm glad he's dead. another dead druggie. who needs him. why should we risk our safety, if he decides to get behind a car, and maybe kill others. it's good that he's dead. maybe others will take notice where heroin leads.

    this is a happy day for me.

  100. Fuck all Y'all says – reply to this


    RIP Brad, you were so talented and cool.
