While no suicide note was left with the body, which was discovered by friend Aaron Edwards, law enforcement officials say the Hollywood icon's grandson had a history of suicide attempts, according to the New York Post.

Andrew had a troubling dark side that had recently overshadowed his famous heritage, including a reckless streak with "fewer sexual boundaries than Anna Nicole (Smith)," revealed friend and Village Voice blogger, Michael Musto.
