Skye McCole Bartusiak

Skye McCole Bartusiak was born on September 28, 1992 in Houston, Texas, USA. She was an actress and producer, known for The Patriot (2000), Don't Say a Word (2001) andThe Cider House Rules (1999). She died on July 19, 2014 in Houston. On July 19, 2014, McCole Bartusiak was found dead in her apartment behind her parents' Houston home. Her mother told CNN and the Associated Press that the actress was found by her boyfriend, sitting up in her bed; she began CPR on her daughter before paramedics arrived, who then worked "for 45 minutes" to no avail. Helen McCole Bartusiak said Skye "had been healthy and did not drink or do drugs", and had recently been suffering from epileptic seizures and that this likely played a role in her death. She died on the same day as "Maverick" and "The Rockford Files" star James Garner. The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences ruled that McCole's death was accidental. The "combined toxic effects of hydrocodone and difluoroethane with carisoprodol" were listed as the main cause of death. [October 2014]
