"Dislocated my elbow last Thursday and not being able to hold my baby is absolutely killing me," Cavallari confirmed the news on Sunday, her first message since the accident.

"My heart is in a million pieces. Mikey, I could always count on you to make me laugh," Cavallari wrote at the time. "You had such a good heart and will be forever missed. I'm at a loss for words but I know u are in a better place and finally at peace. I love u so much RIP."

Michael's struggles with substance abuse and mental health issues may have led him down a troubled path, as he was arrested shortly before disappearing.
