Apple Daily Taiwan reported that Alien Huang’s body was discovered by his father at around 11am today. The elderly man found no signs of life.
Alien was found lying on the floor along a corridor from the toilet. There were some injuries on his head and some blood on the floor.
The forensics team did not find any medication or alcohol at the scene, and there were no signs of forced entry or struggle. The actual cause of death will be determined after investigation.
He reportedly reached home at around 10pm last night and was alone at home until his father found him this morning.
Taiwanese media just reported today (Sept 16) that celebrity Alien Huang, also known by his Chinese stage name Xiao Gui (Little Ghost), was found dead at his home in Beitou, Taipei, by a family member.
Alien was 36, the same age as Korean actress On In-hye and Japanese actress Sei Ashina, who were both found dead on Monday.
Just two days ago, he had hosted a livestream on his Facebook page with Ethan Kuan and Bobby Dou.
Alien found fame as a singer, host and actor, beginning his career as part of the defunct boyband Cosmo.
He is probably best known as a host of Taiwanese entertainment news and variety show 100% Entertainment, before crossing over to Singapore to star in the Michelle Chong movie Already Famous and Mediacorp drama Joys of Life.
Friends and fans are leaving messages of disbelief on his last Instagram post from two days ago. Taiwan-based Japanese singer Aisa Senda wrote, « I don’t want this », while Singapore-based Taiwanese actress Kate Pang said, « Brother Gui, don’t joke about this ».
