According to both media, the actor was found dead in his home by his cleaning assistant and, next to the body, there were several empty jars of sleeping pills. Later, the autopsy indicated that it was a suicide.
Although the web portal for fans in which the news was published, which had the headline “LEO IS DEAD !!!!!”, only lasted a few hours on the Internet (where there are several sites to watch series for free) and then it was removed, all the actor’s followers who saw the content were alarmed, added the named site.
Leonardo DiCaprio would have been replaced by Devon Sawa
The same conspiracy theory assures that, as Leonardo DiCaprio had several films in a row, among them ‘Catch me if you can’ by Steven Spielberg, some Hollywood executives decided that they could not report on the death of the actor, but that he should be replaced by someone else to avoid great economic losses, said the news.
For this reason, they made the determination that Canadian actor Devon Sawa would be the replacement for Leonardo DiCaprio from then on. Many fans who believed the theory were upset to see Sawa in ‘Catch me if you can’ posing as DiCaprio, Upsocl noted.
