American actor Michael Madsen’s son, Hudson Madsen, has died at 26 in a suspected suicide, authorities said on Monday.
He was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound on Hawaii’s island of Oahu.
“I can confirm Hudson Lee Madsen, 26, died by a gunshot wound to the head in a suspected suicide on the island of Oahu,” a spokeswoman for the Department of the Medical Examiner in Honolulu told the Sun.
Hudson was the godson of Oscar-winning director Quentin Tarantino. His father Michael and Tarantino have collaborated on several movies including “Reservoir Dogs” and the two-part “Kill Bill.”
Michael is also dad to sons Calvin, 25, and Luke, 16, whom he shares with his wife, actress DeAnna Madsen. He also shares sons Christian, 31, and Max, 27, with ex Jeannine Bisignano.
Hudson left behind his wife Carlie, with who he had been living with in Wahiawa, Hawaii.
According to photos posted on his social media pages, he served in the US Army and spent time in Afghanistan.
A source told the outlet that Hudson’s mother, DeAnna was traveling to Hawaii to deal with the tragedy.
