On Monday afternoon, Michael K. Williams, best known for his role in “The Wire” as Omar Little was found dead at his penthouse in Brooklyn. Law enforcement agencies are suspecting a case of drug overdose behind the death.
He was found unresponsive lying with his face-down in his luxurious Williamsburg pad. Reports suggest that there was heroine present at the kitchen table in the same dining room.
“No foul play indicated,’’ a police source said. “No forced entry, the apartment was in order.’’
“It is with deep sorrow that the family announces the passing of Emmy nominated actor Michael Kenneth Williams,’’ Marianna Shafran, the spokeswoman told. “They ask for your privacy while grieving this unsurmountable loss.’’
In “Broadwalk Empire”, an HBO series, Williams was seen playing Chalky White. However, it was his character as Omar Little that absolutely won everyone’s hearts.
