Erin Moran cause of death: 'Happy Days' actress had cancer, officials say

Actress Erin Moran, the "Happy Days" actress who was found dead in a trailer park in IN, likely died of cancer, according to a statement from officials in Harrison County.

Moran was found unresponsive about 4 p.m. Saturday in Corydon, Indiana, according to the Harrison County Sheriff's Office, reported the Indianapolis Star.

Scott Baio's comments earlier today on a WABC radio show about the death of his former Happy Days and Joanie Loves Chachi co-star Erin Moran sparked a sharp reaction on Twitter, and Baio has responded. Moran, aged 56, was found dead in her home by emergency responders in IN after a 911 call was placed.

In a joint statement from Harrison County's Sheriff's Department and Coroner's Office in IN, officials said that Moran likely died from cancer-related complications.

The statement goes on to say that no illegal drugs were found in the home about 20 miles northwest of Louisville.

Tributes were paid by Happy Days co-stars, including Ron Howard who recalled her "lighting up TV screens".

Meanwhile, Howard has said he's not interested in a "Happy Days" reboot. She had also appeared in The Fun Cruise, Arabesque and Love, Glory and Beauty. Her teaming with onscreen love interest Scott Baio proved to be so popular that they spun off into their own short-lived series, "Joanie Loves Chachi".

The sequel is expected to reunite the gang from the original, though there's no word on exactly what future icy adventures await. The Walt Disney Studios just announced a slate of new dates and changes for a number of highly anticipated projects.

Baio also sent out his condolences.

The actress was just 14 when she starred in Happy Days, which ran from 1974 to 1983.

But, in recent years, she had fallen on hard times. She was 56 years old. "It was indicative when they did the autopsy that she was receiving medical care", the source said. "Upon arrival of first responders, it was determined that Erin Moran Fleischmann was deceased", the statement reads.

Her last acting credit was in 2010 for an appearance in "Not Another B Movie".
