Michael Madsen Speaks After Son's Suicide

Michael Madsen has broken his silence after his son Hudson's suicide this week.

"I want to thank everyone for their prayers and their kind messages. Our family appreciates that," he told HollywoodLife in a statement.

"We are all incredibly overwhelmed with grief and sadness and shock as my son, whom I just spoke with a few days ago said he was happy," Michael added. "My last text from him was 'I love you dad.' I didn't see any signs of depression. It's so tragic and sad I'm just trying to make sense of everything and understand what happened."

According to The Sun, Hudson was found dead on Monday with "a gunshot wound to the head" on the Hawaiian island of Ohau. The Department of the Medical Examiner in Honolulu said that Hudson's death was a "suspected" suicide. No more details about the death has been released to the media.

Hudson was 26 when he died.
