Yet another gay adult film star has died, and, unfortunately, it seems that drugs were the cause.
News has hit the internet that Stephen Morgan, Jr. (known to fans of adult content as Silas) has passed away. Silas was a performer who appeared on several websites like Cocksure Men, Active Duty, Raw Castings, the Boys Halfway House, and more.
But according to Military Classified’s Rob Navarro, Silas sadly left this Earth earlier this month. And as he tells us, it’s because of an apparent overdose.
“With a heavy heart I bring this disturbing news, one of my models, Stephen Morgan, Jr. (SILAS) passed away on July 8, 2019 of an apparent overdose, he was 25. In my 15 yrs online I’ve only sent 2 tweets like this…it’s never easy…RIP Silas, your beauty will live forever now.”

“Stephen Edward Morgan, Jr., 25, of Orlando, Florida passed away Monday, July 8, 2019. He was born on July 23, 1993 in Indianapolis, Indiana.”

Many on the internet shared their remorse at the news. From Rob, to fans of Silas’s work, to his own sister.
“My little brother my other half!” wrote his sister. “I love and miss you so much! From childhood to now from you meeting your nephews to striving to be the best you could be. I can’t express how proud and blessed I am to have you.”
I am so sorry for your loss, Rob. Silas was one of my favorites and I can’t believe he is gone. May God be with his family. Way too young to die. 🌹🕊🙏🏼
