TMZ is reporting that Erin Moran, of "Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi" fame, has died.
She was 56.
Authorities in Indiana received a call just after 4 PM today from someone reporting an "unresponsive female." When emergency crews arrived, Moran was apparently already dead.
Moran shot to spotlight in the early 70s when she was cast on "Happy Days" as Joanie, the younger sister of Ron Howard's character. She continued the role in 1982 alongside Scott Baio in "Joanie Loves Chachi" but the show only lasted one season.
Erin had a tough time after her "Happy Days" stardom ... a combination of drinking and bizarre behavior that eventually landed her in a trailer park in Indiana. She had run out of money and was reportedly kicked out of the mobile home she shared with husband Steve Fleischmann.
