The reports have evoked an emotional outburst from her fans as they feel that her family and friends should have read into the "troubles" that she was facing.
Was Lindsey Pearlman in Depression?
A faction of social media followers also stated that Pearlman must have been grappling with depression as is evident from her suicide.
However, some of her fans are still not ready to accept that she committed suicide and have demanded a detailed enquiry in the case. It has been learnt that Pearlman had left suicide notes at her home as well as in the car but surprisingly the content of the same has not been revealed.
Pearlman, 43, was known for her roles in "General Hospital," "Empire," and "Chicago Justice,". She was found dead in her vehicle by Los Angles police near Ruyon Canyon Park on February 18. However, despite the post-mortem, the cause of her death remained unresolved.
