More tributes poured in on Twitter and Instagram, including one from entertainment reporter Dayna Devon, who called him an “incredible journalist” and “one of a kind.”

While the official cause of death for Chris Burrous has not been released, Variety reported that authorities mentioned he “may have overdosed.” The news anchor was reportedly with another person at the Days Inn, who tried to keep him alive through CPR. Following the 43-year-old’s death, KTLA president and general manager Don Corsini and news director Jason Ball issued a joint statement:

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Burrous family,” the statement reads. “Chris loved sharing the stories of Southern California and connecting with our viewers. He will be remembered as a great journalist and a wonderful friend to many. He brought a kindness to his work and will be deeply missed by the entire KTLA family.”
