He was 69.
The family of the actor has now spoken out about the tragic death and revealed that the cause of death was suicide.
"It is with heavy hearts that we confirm the death of our father and brother Roscoe Born," the statement reads.
"The gleaming charisma and creativity that shone through his onscreen performances, fueled his robust songwriting repertoire, and charmed all those around him were matched by a darkness in his life."
It continues, "Roscoe has long struggled with bipolar disorder, a shadow that he succumbed to when he took his own life on Tuesday March 3, 2020."
"We are grateful for the outpouring of kind words and memories. We only wish that Roscoe could have seen how much people still carry his daytime villains in their hearts.
