Chris was found unconscious in a Days Inn motel room. Police received a call at about 1:15 p.m. on Dec. 27 from a man who said he was with Chris, who had passed out and was possibly not breathing, Sgt. Dan Suttles of the Glendale Police Department said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Firefighters responded to the scene and administered CPR on Chris. The KTLA 5 weekend anchor was taken to a nearby hospital, but sadly died.
