An actress who was found dead in the Hollywood Hills in February died by suicide, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner announced Tuesday.

Lindsey Pearlman, 43, was found dead Feb. 18, 2022, near the intersection of Franklin and North Sierra Bonita avenues.

She had been missing for five days before her body was found.

The Tuesday announcement included that Pearlman, who acted on television shows such as “General Hospital” and “Empire,” was killed by sodium nitrite toxicity, the coroner found.

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Pearlman’s husband said, “she’s gone. I’m broken.”

Her cousin, Savannah, confirmed the devastating news onto Twitter.

“I’m deeply sad to report that they have found Lindsey, and it was too late,” she tweeted. “I have no other information about the location or circumstance. Lindsey was a fierce animal advocate and a talented actress.”

She suggested people donate to the Santé D’Or animal rescue and adoption center in honor of Pearlman’s memory.

Pearlman is from Chicago where she is a graduate from The Second City Conservatory according to her personal website. She had a recurring role on NBC’s “Chicago Justice” and moved to L.A. to fully pursue more on-camera roles.
