“Our family is extremely saddened by the death of Adam. We ask for privacy as we grieve his loss,” the statement read.

Speaking to Fox News Digital, Rick disclosed the exact cause of Adam’s passing, attributing it to fentanyl.

“Yes, I can confirm Adam died from a fentanyl overdose,” the reality-show star said. “The fentanyl crisis in this country must be taken more seriously. It seems it is just flowing over the borders and nothing is being done about it. We must do better.”

Fans, along with some of Rick’s celebrity acquaintances, swiftly expressed messages of condolences.

“I’m so sorry man,” wrote Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr.

Adam’s brother, Corey Harrison, also paid homage to his late sibling on Instagram, sharing an old baby photo of the two of them in a bath.

“Wax wtf I will always love you bubba,” he captioned the image.

Adam was Rick Harrison’s second child from his first marriage to Kim Harrison. Rick later remarried and had a son named Jake with his second wife.

While viewers saw Rick and Corey managing the Gold & Silver Pawn and appearing on the show, Adam was not as actively involved, although reports suggest he did work alongside his father.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, overdose deaths, including those involving synthetic opioids, rose by 56.6% from January 2020 to 2021.

The Drug Enforcement Agency categorizes fentanyl as a Schedule II controlled substance “that is similar to morphine but about 100 times more potent.” Depending on a person’s body, even two milligrams, which is less than a grain of salt, can be lethal.

Our condolences and prayers are extended to the Harrison family.

Rest in peace, Adam.
