Adam Harrison, son of the well-known reality star Richard ‘Rick’ Harrison, passed away recently due to a reportedly fatal drug overdose. Adam was only 39.
Pawn Stars reality star Rick Harrison came to know of the death of his middle son Adam a while ago. The family is heartbroken and has requested that news and media channels respect their privacy and let them grieve in peace. In a statement, they said that their family has been extremely saddened by the event and wishes to mourn privately.
Though the exact circumstances and time of death are yet unknown, the family representative told media outlets like TMZ that the death has been speculated to be from a fatal overdose, though specific details are still being discovered. The Las Vegas Metro Police Department is investigating the case. Rick Harrison took to his Instagram to share a photo and a pithy tribute to a son lost before his time was up.
The reality star posted a grinning selfie of the two of them when their oysters and beers awaited them on the restaurant table, and they had all the time in the world. The post was captioned, “You will always be in my heart! I love you Adam (broken heart emoji)”. In an age of long, rambling captions, sometimes pain and grief are best expressed in unuttered words.
The post garnered more than 44k likes in the span of a few hours, with comments ranging from concerned inquiries about Adam’s welfare to sending him unlimited love. One fan rightly wrote, “I am so sorry for your loss Rick. Too many of our children are taken by the disease of addiction (folded hands emoji).”
Another wisely penned, “My condolences, we are going to be with our sons one day just be strong and peace for you and Family God Blessings (folded hands and heart emoji).” A third aptly advised others, showering unsolicited advice regarding drug use with a simple reminder, “Overdose guys, let him have space right now.”
