According to TMZ, 23-year-old Michael Huettner, a friend of Norm Macdonald’s son who was house sitting for the comedian, was recently found dead in Macdonald’s home.
Norm Macdonald and his son were out of the country: and Huettner was watching Macdonald’s home, and taking care of his cat.
An overdose is suspected because apparently multiple pill bottles and pills (mainly oxycodone) were surrounding Huettner’s body when his parents discovered him.
Supposedly Norm Macdonald and his son are fully cooperating with the investigation.
