Chad Linley Was 'Happiest He'd Been In Years' And His Death Was 'Totally Unexpected,' Says Family Friend

A close friend of the Linley family talks to HollywoodLife.com about Chad’s history with drugs and his recent recovery. It’s so tragic that he died!

Hannah Montana star Cody Linley’s older brother Chad sadly passed away last Saturday, and his family and friends are still mourning his loss. We spoke to a friend of the Linley family who reveals Chad had a long struggle with drugs, but says things were looking up for Chad right before he died.

“Chad struggled with partying and drugs for years, but he was doing really well before he died,” reveals our source. “He was DJ-ing and was the happiest he’d been for a long time. He was really trying to get his life on track…so this is devastating and totally unexpected. We are shocked.”

Chad was also focusing on his education, and was about to graduate from the Media Tech Institute in Houston.

Details about his death are still being kept private. His funeral is being held today, at Mulkey-Mason Funeral Home of Lewisville, Texas. Friends of Chad and Cody’s have tweeted their support to the family in the wake of this difficult time.

That is so sad that chad died and didn’t even finish graduting from college. But you never know how he died. He could of died from drugs or he could have been murdered or he committed suicide. But not enless you know exactly how he died then you never know what could be the cause of his death. But it must be really hard for Cody because I mean Chad was his brother. I typically don’t know what it feels like for somebody to die because nobody in my family has died yet. Again I’m so sorry for codys loss. Wish you the Best wishes.

Love: Hannah goad

The article itself should’ve never been published out of respect for the Linley family and out of respect for Chad. He was a wonderful person, no matter what demons he was facing, because after all, we ALL have our own demons.

Question the source break friends don’t talk to D-List blogs. A wonderful life was lost. The cause is irrelevant to anyone outside the family.
