Taylor Armstrong’s husband’s death has been confirmed as a suicide and the coroner reports a male ‘roommate’ found the body. What a tragedy!

The LA County Coroner’s Office released its autopsy findings on Russell Armstrong today, ruling his death a suicide. Chief Coroner Investigator Craig Harvey told Us Weekly
the 47-year-old husband of Taylor Armstrong was found hanging from an electrical cord from the rafters in the room of a friend’s house where he’d been staying. “The cause of death is hanging and the final manner of death is suicide,” he said.

Russell’s date of death is listed as Monday, August 15 but the last time his roommate had a conversation with him was Friday, August 12.

The coroner says a male roommate found Russell, although conflicting reports claim Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor was also at the house at the time.

Russell had previously told his sister Laurie Kelsoe that suicide was “not an option” for him as he would never do that to his children. Russell had three children; son Aiden, 13, (with ex-wife Barbara Fredrickson), son Griffin, 11 (with former fiancee Milette Fields) and daughter Kennedy, 5 (with Taylor).
