The mother of Angus Cloud, the actor in “Euphoria” who died in his Oakland home last week, says his death was not a suicide. 

Lisa Cloud posted on Facebook on Friday, saying she appreciates the love their family has received since Cloud’s death on Monday. 

According to Lisa, Angus did not intend to end his life. She was unaware if her son was taking any substances. 

“We may find out that he overdosed accidentally and tragically, but it’s abundantly clear that he did not intend to check out of this world…Social media posts have suggested his death was intentional. I want you to know that is not the case,” his mother wrote.

Cloud’s mother asked one thing of those who want to honor his memory: make random acts of kindness a daily part of life.
