Adam, 39, tragically passed away due to an overdose, as confirmed by his representative, Laura Herlovich to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The news of Adam’s death was first reported by TMZ, and details surrounding the circumstances, including when and where the overdose occurred, remain unknown. The Las Vegas Metro Police Department has initiated an investigation into his untimely death.
The Harrison family is grieving the loss of Adam, and Herlovich shared a brief statement on their behalf, saying: “Our family is extremely saddened by the death of Adam. We ask for privacy as we grieve his loss.”
Adam was Rick Harrison’s second child from his first marriage to Kim, making him the younger brother of Corey Harrison. Rick later remarried Tracy, with whom he shares a son named Jake.
While Adam did not appear on the popular unscripted series Pawn Stars, which features both Rick and Corey, he reportedly worked at the family’s business, Gold & Silver Pawn, before the show premiered in 2009. However, he had not been actively involved in the pawn shop in recent times.
After the news of Adam’s overdose broke, Rick took to Instagram to share a heartfelt tribute to his son. Alongside a photo of himself smiling with Adam at a bar, Rick wrote: “You will always be in my heart! I love you Adam. 💔”
Adam had a close bond with his older brother Corey, who also expressed his grief on Instagram. Corey’s post featured a heartbreaking image of him holding a photograph of the two brothers playing together in a bathtub as children. His caption read: “Wax wtf I will always love you bubba.”
Adam’s sudden passing has left the Pawn Stars family and fans in shock, and further highlights the devastating impact of substance abuse and the effects it can have not only on the sufferer but their family.
