Rest in peace, Henry “Hank” Deutschendorf.
The actor who played Baby Oscar in “Ghostbusters II” alongside his twin brother, William, has passed away. He was only 28 years old.
According to TMZ, Deutschendorf was found dead in his California home last week. Law enforcement sources are reporting it was a death by suicide.
Deutschendorf’s twin, William, told the tabloid that his brother suffered from schizoaffective disorder, a combination of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Deutschendorf reportedly experienced delusions, hallucinations, depression and mania and “fought for his life every day.”

The brothers ran a martial arts school together in San Diego.
Fans will remember Deutschendorf from the 2017 documentary, “Cleanin’ Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters.” The documentary released an official statement on Wednesday about his death.
“It is with great sadness, that we hear that Hank Deutschendorf has passed away. It is never easy to write one of these posts, but when it happens to someone so young and talented, it weighs even heavier,” the film wrote.
Our thoughts are with his family.
