Cody Linley's Brother Found Dead By Apt. Manager: Report

Earlier this month, "Hannah Montana" star Cody Linley's brother died. Now, there are more details about his mysterious and tragic death.

The Harris County Medical Examiner in Houston, Texas told Radar Online that Chad Linley, 29, was found by his apartment manager when he went to go check up on him.

"A friend of Chad's called and said he was concerned because he hadn't heard from him in a while," a spokesperson for the Houston Police told the site.

"His apartment manager performed a welfare check on Chad and found him unresponsive. He then flagged down a nearby cop."

Chad's 21-year-old younger brother, Cody, stars on the Disney show with Miley Cyrus.

No cause of death has yet been determined. According to Radar, it'll take a few weeks before the toxicology reports come back.

A funeral for Chad was held on August 12. Friend Eric Thomas told Radar that "Even at his funeral in what should've been a sad and gut-wrenching time for most, he managed to bring a smile to everyone's face and laughter rang thoughout the entire service as different speakers came up and shared different experiences and stories about Chad."

A source told Hollywood Life that Cha, a DJ, had been "the happiest he'd been for a long time" right before his death. The source also said that although he struggled with partying and drugs, "he was really trying to get his life on track."

Disney starlet Demi Lovato, also one of Cody's friends, tweeted condolences on August 10. "RIP Chad Linley… Knew you since I was a kid.. You were family… You will be missed.. Please #prayforcodylinley and his amazing family," she wrote.
