The family of late Moses J. Moseley is clearing the air about the circumstances surrounding his tragic death. “The Walking Dead” star suddenly passed away at 31 after his body was found in a car.
Moses J. Moseley Dead At 31
As The Blast previously reported, Moseley was declared dead last week on January 26, after authorities discovered his body in the Hudson Bridge area of Stockbridge, GA, which covers a freeway.
Moseley, who was most famous for his role as Mike — one of Michonne’s zombies in “The Walking Dead”— had gone missing on the Sunday of the previous week when he went radio silent. After not hearing from him for a couple of days, they filed a missing person’s report with the authorities on Wednesday.
The worried family also reached out to OnStar to help track their son’s location, and shortly after, a vehicle was traced, and in it lay Moseley’s body. The 31-year-old actor died of a gunshot wound per a family member.
Investigations have since begun to find out who pulled the trigger and if there was any foul play involved. However, authorities were looking at it as a possible suicide when the news broke. Aside from starring in “The Walking Dead,” Moseley had roles in “Joyful Noise,” “Watchmen,” “The Internship,” “Queen of the South.”
Family Says Moseley Was Murdered
While investigations are still ongoing concerning Moseley’s death, his family is clamping down on the suicide narrative being propagated by the media. In a recent interview with TMZ, the late actor’s sister Teera Kimbo says his family doesn’t believe it was suicide.

She revealed that those close to Moseley knew how much he loved and enjoyed life, so it’s impossible he took his own life. Kimbo shared that the late star had even booked a taping for the Monday before he was found as he was loving the direction his acting career was going.
She noted that Moseley had big things planned for the future, so it’s unlikely he would sabotage it all. Instead, his family believes the actor was kidnapped and killed three days later.
Kimbo elaborated, saying Moseley was found in his car with a gunshot wound in the face while the doors were locked, the gun placed on his laps. The star’s sister shared details from the ongoing investigation, saying the weapon found at the scene belonged to her.
She, however, clarified, saying she and Moseley often visited the gun range, and each had licenses to carry. Authorities haven’t responded to the family’s claims as of this writing.
