Who was brad renfro dating when he died obsidian hydration dating limitations
When the two clapped eyes on each other for the first time in a decade, what Altschul saw shocked him.
He was familiar with Renfro’s struggles with drug use, including an infamous 2005 arrest for attempting to buy heroin in Skid Row in Los Angeles.
In December 2005, he was picked up by the LAPD during an undercover drug sweep of downtown’s skid row.
The LAPD had taken a Times reporter and photographer along during the sweep, and a photo showing Renfro being arrested by two officers was featured on the paper’s front page.
Brad Renfro looked different, but Fernando Altschul expected that — they hadn't seen each other in 10 years, when Renfro was 14 years old.

When Renfro was cast in The Client from a pool of 5,000 kids as Mark Sway — a foul-mouthed delinquent from a Tennessee trailer park — he was a 10-year-old from Knoxville with the same floppy bangs and youthfully handsome face of so many other popular child actors of the 1990s who funneled through Nickelodeon and Disney Channel shows.In 1998, Renfro won the lead role opposite Ian Mc Kellen in “Apt Pupil” and appeared as a convenience store clerk with Scarlett Johansson and Steve Buscemi in 2001’s “Ghost World.”Despite the promising start to his acting career, Renfro was known for his legal troubles.In the late 1990s he was arrested for trying to steal a yacht in Florida.But he did not expect Renfro, who’d gained a considerable amount of weight, to reference his addiction quite so blithely."He jokingly told me he'd put down the spoon and picked up the fork," Altschul, now 55, told Buzz Feed News. 15, 2008, Renfro's girlfriend found his body in his Los Angeles apartment; the coroner report stated he died from "acute heroin/morphine intoxication." He was 25.It had been years since Renfro had delivered a performance that caught the public's attention, and at the time, he was treated as yet another addition to the mournful legacy of former child stars — Dana Plato, River Phoenix, Judy Garland — whose lives collapsed from Hollywood darling to death by overdose.
Renfro, who had a history of drug abuse, was declared dead by paramedics at 9 a.m., according to coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter.
