New details surrounding the tragic death of 28-year-old actor Jansen Panettiere have emerged, shedding light on the discovery of his lifeless body. Friends found Jansen after he failed to attend a scheduled meeting, prompting them to rush to his residence. Upon arrival, one friend found Jansen “sitting in a chair, unresponsive,” prompting an immediate call to 911 and the initiation of CPR.
According to a police report, officers spoke with Jansen and his father, Skip Panettiere, who indicated that he had spoken to his son the night before, noting that Jansen sounded “good.” The cause of his death remains undetermined.
Jansen, the younger brother of actress Hayden Panettiere, was found dead in his New York home at the age of 28. As of February 20, there is no evidence of foul play, but the cause of death remains unknown. Jansen, who had distanced himself from Hollywood in recent years, showcased interests in abstract art and apparel design on social media. The close bond between the siblings was evident from recent Instagram posts, with a poignant black and white photo of Hayden giving Jansen a haircut just three weeks before his passing. Hayden has been candid about her struggles with addiction and her decision to relinquish custody of her child in 2018 for the sake of her well-being and motherhood. The Panettiere family faces a challenging time, and condolences are extended to them.
