Sharon Stone is mourning the loss of her 22-year-old nephew Colin, after he was found dead earlier this month from a suspected heroin overdose.
The Stone family released a statement to Us Weekly on Wednesday, Nov. 19, remembering the late son of the actress’ brother, Michael Stone.
“Colin was a wonderful talented son,” the statement read. “Unfortunately he had an addiction bigger than himself. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers go out to all families coping with children facing addiction.”
The L.A. County Coroner’s office told Radar that Colin was found dead on Nov. 10, in his Hollywood apartment “during a welfare check by his apartment manager.” The spokesman told the site that Colin’s death was recorded as a “possible overdose, pending toxicology reports.”
The Basic Instinct actress, 56, was seen on Tuesday, Nov. 18, in Paris, wearing a head-to-toe black outfit with the exception of a gray sweater. She is expected to return to the spotlight in a 2015 TV series, in which she will play the first female Vice President of the U.S.
