“It’s so tragic and sad. I’m just trying to make sense of everything and understand what happened,” he continued. “He had typical life challenges that people have with finances, but he wanted a family. He was looking towards his future, so it’s mind blowing. I just can’t grasp what happened.”

Hunter was the eldest of three sons that Madsen shares with his second wife, People magazine reports. The actor also has two older children from a previous relationsip.

“My last text from him was ‘I love you dad,'” Madsen reportedly said in the statement.
