He was too young… way too young…

Last week, Henry "Hank" Deutschendorf — who played Baby Oscar in Ghostbusters II alongside his twin brother William — committed suicide by hanging at his home in Escondido, CA.

According to the medical examiner, the 29-year-old was discovered by his twin who unsuccessfully tried to rescue him.

TMZ reports the actor suffered from schizoaffective disorder, which is a combination of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia where one can experience hallucinations and depression. He reportedly "fought for his life every day."

After starring in the hit blockbuster, Hank ran a martial arts school, and also appeared in the 2017 documentary Cleanin' Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters.

Our thoughts go out to Deutschendorf's friends and family during this difficult time.

We didn't think it was possible for the loss of Carrie Fisher to be any more tragic, but this news does hurt.

It seems the Star Wars heroine never slayed the demon of drug addiction; the latest toxicology report from the coroner reveals she had cocaine, opiates, methadone, and ethanol in her system at the time of her death.

The cocaine use was determined to take place "sometime approximately in the last 72 hours" of Carrie's life.

The cause of death was ultimately revealed on Friday to be sleep apnea. The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office noted both the drug use and Carrie's atherosclerotic heart disease as being possible contributing factors but could not say to what extent the substance abuse had an effect.

Ultimately the manner of death was ruled "undetermined."

We're sure Carrie's daughter Billie Lourd was hit hardest by the news. She released a statement to People, saying:

A pregnant black woman was fatally shot by Seattle police on Sunday after they responded to a burglary call she reportedly made.

Officers fired their weapons at Charlenna Lyles (above) in front of her children after seeing the 30-year-old holding a knife in the apartment of a low-income housing complex in Magnuson Park.

Lyles' sister, Monika Williams, told local press the mother of four (who was pregnant with her fifth child) suffers from untreated "mental health issues" and is not a big enough physical threat to warrant gunfire.

She explained to The Stranger:

"The officers need to pay for what they did. Even if my sister had a knife in her hand, she weighs like nothing, even if she's soaking wet. There's no way you could've taken a taser and taken her down? There's no way you could've taken a baton and knocked the knife out of her hand?"

The Seattle Police Department has placed the two officers, both white, on administrative leave while their use of deadly

Baby Luna's momma shared:

"Every step I take feels a little shaky. It's such a weird feeling that you wouldn't know unless you have really bad anxiety. You feel like everyone is looking at you."

Still, like we previously mentioned, she hopes it doesn't impede with her wanting to expand her family with husband John Legend:

"I would definitely adopt or have foster children. But I loved being pregnant. Maybe I should be scared [of having PPD again], but I don't know. It couldn't be any worse than it was — could it?"

Aww!

Either way, the Legends will have a beautiful family!
