FULL TITLE: Henry Winkler and Ron Howard lead tributes to their Happy Days co-star Erin Moran after actress who played feisty teenager Joanie Cunningham dies aged 56 'of a suspected heroin overdose'

Erin Moran, who shot to fame playing teenager Joanie Cunningham in 1970s sitcom Happy Days, has died age 56.

Authorities found Moran’s body in Indiana following a call about an ‘unresponsive female at around 4pm Saturday.

A source told DailyMail.com that Moran, who lived in a trailer park in New Salisbury, Indiana, died of a suspected heroin overdose.

Her co-stars including Henry Winkler and Ron Howard were quick to pay tribute to her with poignant messages on Twitter.

Winkler, who played Arthur ‘Fonzie’ Fonzarelli in the show, tweeted, 'OH Erin, now you will finally have the peace you wanted so badly here on earth, Rest In It serenely now, too soon,' just moments after her death was announced.

Howard, who played Richie Cunningham, tweeted in tribute to his on-screen little sister, saying: 'Such sad sad news. RIP Erin. I'll always choose to remember you on our show making scenes better, getting laughs and lighting up tv screens.'

Heroin epidemic is the WSJ’s little side effect of all that good immigration.

She was a child actress, in Daktari before she was in Happy Days. One wonders, with Hollywood as it is, how she was treated.

May her loved ones be comforted by God.

“One wonders, with Hollywood as it is, how she was treated.”

She did not OD in Hollywood.

She OD’d in middle America and large parts of middle America have higher addiction rates and higher rates of overdoing than Hollywood.

Just a reminder.... Death, addiction, and despair don’t care who you are, how famous you are, or how old you are. I remember getting bashed here at FR when I expressed my sympathies for Brad Renfro. He took his life the same way at half her age.

Heroin epidemic is a result of toppling the Taliban.

Yes, but it mentions the possibility of a drug overdose so it brings updated info when compared to the earlier posts.

She was an alcoholic, drug addict and suffered from mental illness. Very sad life.

Morgana - thanks for posting because if you had not posted your thread, I would not be aware of it.

Ignore the posting police and thanks again for posting.

Yep..I hope God heals her now

Nobody wants to live like that they just get overwhelmed by life

I’m in my hometown dealing with my bff who’s in hospice after a life of alcoholism and drug addiction

From a prominent rich family and now it’s just me and his sister and a driver

Sailed the world with me saw plenty adventure all over and bullets flying and women beyond description of beauty and charm and money in piles

Now just in Gods waiting room waiting for pill call four times a day chain smoking Reds

6’3” 115 lbs

Pancreatitis
Heart failure
Diabetes
Hep
Neuropathy bad

And I think the slims too from firing dope but he won’t admit it

He can do whatever he wants now...smoke....strippers in the room...he’s dying..

It’s a few months likely but he’s very tuff...most folks would be long since room temp

I’m down here every 2-3 weeks...drive the Trace in the damp gloom thinking of all those folks who use to walk or horseback it thru hostile territory back to Nashville

I hadn’t seen him in 15 years

We sharply diverged

Love and duty...I make sure my kids get it....my 10er is with me

Wow, I remember watching that. And Cowboy in Africa. And The Rifleman. And Rat Patrol, The FBI, The Time Tunnel, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

Just hearing that name took me back. I had no idea she was in it.
