The actor, best known for his brief role in AMC’s The Walking Dead series, Moses J. Moseley, was found dead near the Hudson Bridge in Stockbridge, Georgia, last Wednesday.

Moseley, who was set to appear in DC’s upcoming Watchmen streaming series, was found with a single gunshot wound after his family filed a missing person’s report after his family had not heard from the young actor a week before his body was found:

Our thoughts and prayers are with our #TWDFamily member Moses J. Moseley.

Comicbook.com shared:

“Members of the actor’s family hadn’t heard from Moseley in most of the week preceding his death. They then filed a missing person’s report on Wednesday, January 26th, and were able to use OnStar tracking to lead them to his body. The site reports the family found out he died of a single gunshot wound.”

Moseley appeared in a total of six Walking Dead episodes as “Zombiefied Mike,” a zombie that Michonne (Danai Gurira) infamously led around in the series’ third season. He also appeared in DC’s Watchmen series and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013).

While Moseley only made brief appearances in the previously mentioned movies and TV series, it’s more than possible that the young actor would have landed a more significant role in the near future. Alas, another star has been added to the night sky above Hollywood.

Georgia police are still investigating the incident, reports TMZ.

One of these cops, Angela Abar, adopts the identity of Sister Night and fights racists while dealing with the decades-long legacy of the vigilantes.

Decades after masked vigilante Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) uncovers a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes in 1985 New York, the adventures of Doctor Manhattan (Billy Crudup) of the Doomsday Clock, Edward Blake/The Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and Nite Owl II (Patrick Wilson) inspire HBO’s thrilling streaming series.

Zack Snyder initially directed the Watchmen (2009) blockbuster film. It is a true American hero story, with many considering it the best of DC Universe stories from the original comic book.

There’s no official confirmation of a Watchmen season two, but DC fans are crossing their fingers.
