    How Cody Longo Died

    Longo passed away at his home in Austin, Texas, on February 8, 2023, at the age of 34. Alcohol bottles were found at the scene.

    The Days of Our Lives’ actor Cody Longo’s cause of death was revealed as chronic ethanol abuse according to the autopsy report gathered by TMZ. 

    In fact, the Travis County Medical Examiner’s office ruled that Longo’s death did not occur under suspicious circumstances, but due to his alcohol misuse which led to fatal alcohol poisoning.

    Longo’s wife Stephanie stated “Cody was our whole world” after his death. He left behind his wife as well as his three children Elijah, Lyla, and Noah.

    The New York Times revealed Longo struggled with alcohol addiction for several years. After Longo’s death, several family members reported that he participated in chronic drinking throughout his life.

    In 2020, he was arrested on a domestic assault charge. He was intoxicated at the time of the incident.

    According to family members, Longo attended a rehab center the summer before his death in February. Longo’s representative Alex Gittelson expressed his condolences by stating Longo was a “dear friend who will be missed.”

    Longo’s manner of death serves as a reminder to seek treatment if you’re struggling with alcohol abuse.
