It’s more sad news regarding Russell Armstrong’s untimely death.  Russell Armstrong, estranged husband of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong, was found dead on Monday night from an apparent suicide.  Keep reading to find out what the autopsy has revealed.     

Earlier this week we learned that Russell, age 47, was found dead in his LA home in what appeared to be a suicide case.  There have been numerous rumors on who initially found Russell and if Taylor was in the home or not.  But there is now one thing confirmed, Russell did take his own life.   

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office completed Russell’s autopsy and have officially ruled his death a suicide.  In an interview with US Weekly, Chief Coroner Investigator Craig Harvey confirmed, “The cause of death is hanging and the final manner of death is suicide.”  Harvey also released the details that Russell was found hanging from an electrical cord from the rafters in his bedroom at the L.A. home. Russell was staying with a friend and it is has been confirmed that his roommate is the one who found his body.    

There will be continued speculation on what caused him so much pain that he would take his own life, since Russell did not leave a suicide note.  Taylor is said to be devastated by Russell’s death and his three children are sure to have a long road of recovery ahead of them. 

We will keep you posted on this story and let you know if Bravo plans to delay the premiere of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills premiere.  In the meantime our thoughts are with the entire Armstrong family.
