Misty Upham’s body has been found. She starred in August: Osage County alongside Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep. Upham had been missing since October 5.
Upham’s family said one of their search teams found a body in a ravine near Seattle’s White River on Thursday, Oct. 16. Many assumed her cause of death was suicide however that was not confirmed or denie until now.
Recent medical reports state that Upham died from falling off a steep cliff near her home. Her family claim that they do not believe it was suicide because she had planning to move back to L.A. Upham’s father claimed she was acting “suicidal” but does not believe she would have taken her own life.
Upham’s purse and shoes were found at the top of the cliff, not on her body.
Meryl Streep paid an emotional tribute to her passing. Meryl told the Hollywood Reporter: “So so sad to hear this news — all our thoughts are with her family and with her beautiful spirit.”
