Adam Harrison, the 39-year-old son of Rick Harrison, a familiar face from Pawn Stars, tragically passed away on January 19. Adam, Rick’s second oldest son, was known for maintaining a low profile and steering clear of social media.
According to reports from TMZ, his untimely death is suspected to be a result of a drug overdose. Authorities are currently conducting an investigation to uncover the circumstances surrounding his passing.
Born in 1984, Adam Harrison was one of Rick Harrison’s three sons, the second from his first marriage to Kim. Despite his early involvement in the family’s pawn shop, which eventually gained fame through the reality series Pawn Stars starting in 1989, Adam chose to live life away from the spotlight. Details about the exact time and location of his death, as well as the substance involved, are currently unknown.
Although Adam maintained an Instagram page, he rarely shared posts, in stark contrast to Rick Harrison’s frequent updates about his other two sons, Corey and Jake Harrison. Rumors suggest that Adam pursued a career as a plumber, indicating his preference for a private life.
The Las Vegas Metro Police Department is conducting a thorough investigation into the circumstances leading to Adam’s demise, as reported by TMZ. The family, deeply saddened by Adam’s death, issued a statement to the outlet, requesting privacy during this difficult time: “Our family is extremely saddened by the death of Adam. We ask for privacy as we grieve his loss.”
Pawn Stars, the American reality TV series featuring a family-run pawn shop, has been airing on the History channel since 2009. Rick Harrison, as the owner of the pawn store, plays a central role in the show, with his two other sons, Corey and Jake, also prominently featured. Notably, Adam chose to live a low-profile life and never made an appearance on the show.
