The Flash star Logan Williams' official cause of death has been released more than one year after he died suddenly aged just 16

In a report filed by Canada's BC Coroners Service and obtained by the New York Post, the late star died from an "unintentional illicit drug toxicity (fentanyl)" which was classified as "accidental". 

"Toxicological analysis detected fentanyl in a range where lethal outcomes have been reported," the coroner stated. "Even small amounts of fentanyl have been shown to be potentially toxic."

Logan Williams stars with Brigid Brannagh on The Flash.

At the time of his death in April 2020, no cause of death was given for Williams, who was best known for playing the role of Barry Allen as a child in The Flash.

Following his death, his mother Marlyse Williams told Tri-City News the family was crushed by his sudden passing. Due to the social distancing measures in Canada at the time, she has been forced to grieve for her son alone.
