Hours after it was revealed 7th Heaven’s patriarch, Stephen Collins, was being investigated for child molestation, it’s been confirmed that one of his former co-stars, Sarah Goldberg, has passed away.
Sarah, who portrayed Matt Camden’s (Barry Watson) wife on the WB show, was found dead at her family’s cabin in Wisconsin on Sept. 27.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, an autopsy failed to determine the cause of death, but it’s suspected to be from a heart condition.
“She went to sleep and didn’t wake up,” her mother told the outlet.
Sarah starred in several TV shows including Judging Amy, Without a Trace, and House. She also nabbed roles in My Best Friend’s Wedding and Training Day.
7th Heaven made headlines today after TMZ released leaked audio footage of Stephen, 67, allegedly confessing to child molestation. His estranged wife secretly recorded their therapy session as he allegedly admitted to exposing himself to an 11-year-old girl “a couple of times” until she was 13.
