The television world unfortunately lost yet another star just recently. Heath Freeman, known for his roles on shows such as Bones and Raising the Bar, has died at the age of 41. News of his death was confirmed on Monday, but the actor reportedly passed away this past weekend. Since then, a few people have spoken out publicly about Freeman, including Shanna Moakler, a good friend of his. And the “heartbroken” former reality TV star took to social media to share some loving posts about her departed colleague.
The former Miss USA posted about Heath Freeman through an Instagram post that included a snapshot of the two of them and presumably another friend. In her caption, she mourned her friend and praised him for his abilities as an artist:
The actor’s death was formally confirmed by his manager, Joe S. Montifiore, earlier this week, though no cause of death was reported. Shanna Moakler, however, stated in the comments of her post that he passed away in his sleep on Saturday. You can see her original post down below:

The Meet the Barkers alum also posted another tribute on her Twitter account, one that featured multiple photos of her and her late friend. And like her other post, she included a sweet caption that memorialized the deceased performer. The tribute is available to view for yourself:

Heath Freeman amassed a number of major acting credits over the course of his career. The star appeared on various high-profile shows, ranging from ER and NCIS to The Closer and Torchwood. But he was arguably best known to Bones fans for portraying serial killer Howard Epps on three episodes of the fan-favorite dramedy, between 2005 and 2007. Freeman’s most recent project was the upcoming film Terror on the Prairie, which is being headlined by Gina Carano.
In his statement (via Deadline), Joe Montifiore praised his client as “a brilliant human being” who possessed “deep loyalty, affection, and generosity towards his family and friends.” He continued:
Both Shanna Moakler and Joe Montifiore’s tributes paint a sweet picture of the late actor. While he certainly shined on any screen that he graced, it’s heartwarming to know that his light shone just as bright (if not brighter) when he was with his loved ones.
