The world was shocked to learn of the sudden death of All My Children star Alec Musser. His death was so unexpected and the news broke so quickly that it left fans with a simple question: what could have killed this talented and successful actor? Unfortunately, we now have the answer, and it’s more horrific than we ever could have imagined: the celebrity died from a self-inflicted shotgun wound to his chest.

Perhaps the only thing scarier than how Alec Musser died was how his body was discovered. He lived with his fiancée Paige Press in Del Mar, California, and when she went to bed Friday night, everything was fine. However, when she woke up the next day, she found Musser slumped over in the bathroom and naturally went to investigate what had happened.

When she discovered his body, Alec Musser’s fiancée immediately called 911, and paramedics soon arrived at their home. Sadly, there was nothing they could do for the soap opera star, and the medical examiner verified that Musser was dead. The examiner also verified the cause of death (the aforementioned shotgun) and ruled out foul play, declaring that the celebrity had died due to suicide.

Fans of All My Children knew last week that Alec Musser had died because his fiancée confirmed that he had passed away over the weekend, but they did not know how. At the time, details about the star’s suicide had not been made public. Heartbreakingly, she recently went on social media and declared that Musser was “the best fiancé I could have ever asked for.”

While every such death is a tragedy, Alec Musser’s passing seems particularly sad because the star was only 50 when he died. He had many years of acting left ahead of him, and we would have loved to see more of the unique spark that he brought to shows like All My Children. In pondering the star’s untimely death, we couldn’t help but think about his unconventional path to becoming a soap opera superstar.

Once upon a time, Alec Musser mostly did modeling work and appeared in the occasional commercial. However, way back in 2004, he appeared on the SOAPnet original series I Wanna Be a Soap Star. As the name of that show implies, it pits contestants against each other, with the winner landing a role on a major soap opera.

You guessed it: Alec Musser competed in the second season of the show and won the coveted prize of a role on the long-running soap opera All My Children. He became the second actor to play the role of Del Henry, and he acted on the soap opera from 2005 to 2007; after that, he made occasional appearances in shows like Desperate Housewives, but he hasn’t had an onscreen role in anything since 2011.

The unexpected and untimely death of Alec Musser serves as a powerful reminder that we never know which of our friends and family may be struggling with their own personal demons. It’s important to reach out to those who may have mental health issues and especially those who may have indicated possible suicidal ideation. By taking care of others and ourselves in this way, we can reduce the number of lives torn apart by suicide.
