Best known for his role Del Henry on the hit soap opera, All My Children, he also starred in a number of films, including the comedy Grown Ups with Adam Sandler.

So, what caused someone so young to die so unexpectedly?

Alec Musser’s Cause of Death Confirmed A Suicide

The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office revealed that Alec died by suicide after an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Alec was found by his fiancée Paige at their home in California. According to the medical examiner’s press release, Paige found him the next morning “slumped forward on the bathroom floor” with a firearm identified as a shotgun nearby.

Alec was confirmed dead by law enforcement and paramedics on the scene and his official cause of death is listed as a suicide.

Paige had told Fox News that Alec was suffering from a “severe case” of COVID-19 prior to his death. She quickly added that he was both vaccinated and boosted.

“He was a very healthy person. I mean he took exceptional care of his body and what went into it,” she said. “He’d eat some cookies and that was the worst thing I ever saw him do.”
