Gary Coleman's Parents Seek Answers After Son's Death
By PopEater Staff Posted May 30th 2010 07:45AM
"We're not pointing fingers at anyone, but we need to know exactly what happened," Sue, 67, told PEOPLE. "We're not angry. We're just concerned. Did our son fall down the stairs? Did he fall in the bathtub? We need to have some closure on our son's life."
The Colemans, who reportedly found out about their son's death through the media, were unable to contact Gary's wife, 24-year-old Shannon Price, in the immediate aftermath.
"It's frustrating that we haven't heard from the Price family. But it's possible they didn't even know we existed. Gary may have told her that he didn't have any family," Sue said.
In the meantime, a spokeswoman for Utah Valley Regional Medical Center said that an "accident" led to Coleman's death on Friday, and that he suffered an intracranial hemorrhage. Though the cause of death is still under investigation, a Santaquin Police Chief told PEOPLE that "there is no [criminal] investigation going on."
Coleman, who was estranged from his parents for decades, was hospitalized on May 26 after reportedly suffering a fall in his Utah home. The 42-year-old actor later slipped into a coma and was put on life support before his death on May 28.
