Actress Erin Moran likely died from cancer-related complications

The statement didn't specify what type of cancer Moran had.

"Happy Days" actress Erin Moran likely died from cancer at her IN home, authorities said IN a statement obtained by ABC News.

Moran had stage 4 cancer, and likely died from complications, according to autopsy results released by the Harrison County Sheriff's Office.

'On Saturday the 22nd day of April, 2017, Erin Marie Moran-Fleischmann passed away at her residence located in New Salisbury, Indiana, ' the statement read.

Moran joined the Happy Days cast in 1974 when she was 13, and made appearances in Murder She Wrote and The Waltons.

On hearing of her death, filmmaker and former "Happy Days" star Ron Howard tweeted, "Such sad sad news". First responders were unable to resuscitate her and an autopsy...

The later years in the star's life were reportedly plagued by hardship with reports in 2012 that Erin was homeless and living in hotels after being kicked out of her mother-in-law's mobile home.

Happy Days castmates (and other TV royalty from the time) expressed their condolences about Moran's passing.

Erin, who had previously struggled with substance abuse issues, only told a few people of her illness, but her TV co-star and longtime friend Anson Williams had no idea how advanced the disease was.

When the shows were cancelled, she moved out of Hollywood but went on to act in minor roles throughout her life.

In 1982, she was paired off with fellow "Happy Days" performer Scott Baio in the short-lived "Joanie Loves Chachi".

"She was in a good place", he said.

"I'm sorry if that's cold, but God gave you a brain, gave you the will to live and thrive and you gotta take care of yourself", he added.

Howard also alluded to her troubled past on "The Talk", saying that he chooses to remember her as the "feisty, spirited girl" he knew on set.
