About Skye McCole Bartusiak

Skye McCole Bartusiak born on 28 September 1992 in Houston. She is a citizen of United States of America. She died on 19 July 2014 in Houston from a drug overdose at age 21 years, 9 months.

She was an American actress (1992-2014).

Skye McCole Bartusiak has worked as an actor, television actor, film actor, model and stage actor.


On July 19, 2014, Bartusiak died in her apartment behind her parents' Houston home. Her mother told CNN and the Associated Press that Skye's boyfriend found the actress sitting up in her bed; Helen began CPR on her daughter before the arrival of paramedics, who then worked "for 45 minutes" to resuscitate her. Her mother said Skye "had been healthy and did not drink or do drugs", but had recently been suffering from epileptic seizures; she believed that this fact had likely played a role in her daughter's death. A memorial service was held in Houston six days later; her brother Stephen told mourners: "If you want to know what makes Skye happy, go out and plant a tree."

The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences ruled in October 2014 that Bartusiak's death was an accident. The "combined toxic effects of hydrocodone and difluoroethane with carisoprodol" were listed as the main cause of death, possibly from inhaling the substances.
