Actor Logan Williams died of an accidental Fentanyl overdose, according to the coroner’s office in Canada.
According to multiple reports, ‘The Flash’ star died after what authorities are calling an “unintentional illicit drug toxicity (fentanyl)” and classified the situation as an “accident.”
The 16-year-old teen star skyrocketed to fame by playing a young Barry Allen on The CW’s ‘The Flash.’ The actor died suddenly last year, and his mother confirmed the death to a local newspaper. At the time, the cause of death was unclear — but it was suspected it could be related to drug use.
‘The Flash’ Star Accidentally Ingests Powerful Opioid, Fentanyl
Now, the Coroners Service of British Columbia has determined the up-and-coming star died of a Fentanyl overdose. Interestingly, the classification makes it appear the young actor wasn’t trying to consume the powerful Opioid and might have ingested it by mistake. As you know, several other high-profile deaths have been similarly classified including Prince, Tom Petty, Mac Miller, and possibly Michael K. Williams.
At the time of his death, Logan’s mother spoke to the New York Post and told the outlet that her son had struggled with addiction for the past three years. In the interview, she says she discovered her son was using marijuana at age 13, and eventually progressed to harder drugs. As for Fentanyl, his mom didn’t think he was using the powerful drug — which is known for creating a “heroin-like effect” on the body.

On April 1, 2020, in Burnaby, British Columbia the coroner’s office says Logan left a residential care facility and was eventually reported missing. Once he returned, the report says he appeared to be agitated and under the influence of drugs. At that point, he went to bed and the staff checked on him hourly. But, at some point when they went to wake him up and he was unresponsive.
Logan “was in complete denial because he was so ashamed of his addiction,” she said. Adding the actor had been living in a group home for struggling youth after spending another month in a facility in Canada in 2019. ‘The Flash’ star’s mother decided to go public with the situation, in hopes that she might help others struggling with the same situation and “create a legacy out of this tragedy.”
