Actor Alec Musser, 'All My Children' star, dies at 50 of suicide

Alec Musser, loved by fans for his roles in All My Children and Desperate Housewives, died last week, leaving family, friends, and fans stunned.

According to Breitbart, officials concluded that Musser committed suicide. He was 50 at the time of his death.

The details of his suicide are tragic, to say the least. The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office revealed that he died via gunshot wound to his chest. Musser used a shotgun, according to authorities.

His fiance, Paige Press, discovered him on Saturday at their Del Mar, California-based residence.

Press originally broke the horrific news of Musser's passing in several Instagram posts, shocking the actor's legion of adoring fans.

"RIP to the love of my life. I will never stop loving you. My heart is broken," Press wrote. "Today is the worst day of my life. We were so happy."

Breitbart noted:

Musser was perhaps most known for playing Del Henry in 43 episodes of the hit television series, All My Children, a soap role he held after winning the second season of the reality series I Wanna Be a Soap Star.

He had also played Friedrich in the show, Desperate Housewives, and appeared in the 2010 comedy film, Grown Ups, adding to a star-studded cast in a production co-written and produced by Adam Sandler.

He also appeared in several movies, including "Grown Ups," which triggered a tribute from actor Adam Sandler.

"I loved this guy. Cannot believe he is gone. Such a wonderful, funny good man. Thinking of Alec Musser and his family and sending all my love. A true great sweetheart of a person,” Sandler wrote on social media.

Given his popularity in acting and modeling, tributes poured in across social media from fans and former colleagues.

"I still remember when Alec Musser won the soap competition and then debuted as Del Henry on All My Children. He gave his all to the role and enjoyed it," one X user wrote

Another X user referenced one of his memorable movie lines, writing, "'What's up ladies! I'm from Sascatchatoon! That's up in Canada, eh? you American Ladies have been up to Sascatchatoon Eh?' RIP Alec Musser Thoughts & prayers to his family & friends."

Musser had reportedly taken a break from acting for several years before his death, but had a strong social media presence.

Clearly, he left a positive impact on his family, friends and fans around the world and will undoubtedly be missed.
