AceShowbiz - Michael Madsen is dealing with a great loss. The actor and his family "are heartbroken and overwhelmed with grief" after his son Hudson Madsen has passed away from a suspected suicide in Hawaii. He was only 26 years old.
Hudson was found dead with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head on the island of Oahu, authorities have confirmed. "I can confirm Hudson Lee Madsen, 26, died by a gunshot wound to the head in a suspected suicide on the island of Oahu," a spokeswoman for the Department of the Medical Examiner in Honolulu stated.
Authorities would not confirm the time of death. A source told The Sun that Hudson's mother DeAnna Madsen has traveled to Hawaii to deal with the family tragedy.
Meanwhile, the Madsen family has released a statement on the tragedy. "We are heartbroken and overwhelmed with grief and pain at the loss of Hudson," read the statement to The Blast. "His memory and light will be remembered by all who knew and loved him. We ask for privacy and respect during this difficult time. Thank you."
Hudson is Michael's third son overall and his first from his marriage to DeAnna. The "Reservoir Dogs" star also shares sons Calvin, 25, and Luke, 16, with "The Price of Air" actress. Hudson is the godson of filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, who has collaborated with his father on multiple films, including "Reservoir Dogs" and "Kill Bill".
Michael is also a father to son Christian, 31, and Max, 27, whom he shares with his ex-wife Jeannine Bisignano. The 64-year-old also has a daughter named Jessica.
According to his Facebook profile, Hudson lived in Wahiawa, Hawaii with his wife Carlie. He appears to have served in the U.S. Army and posted pictures on his social media taken in Afghanistan.
