Dune actress Alicia Witt’s parents both mysteriously found dead at their home after star hadn’t heard from them

THE parents of Dune star Alicia Witt were found dead in their home, reports say.

The actress asked a relative to check on Robert Witt, 87, and Diane Witt, 75, at their Worcester, Massachusetts home as she had not heard from them for “several days”.

In a statement, Witt, 46, said: “I reached out to a cousin who lives close to my parents to check on them. Sadly, the outcome was unimaginable.

“I ask for some privacy at this time to grieve and to wrap my head around this turn of events, and this surreal loss.”

Cops haven’t confirmed the cause of death but said there were no signs of foul play.

An autopsy will be conducted and officers scoured the home as they try to establish a cause of death.

Lt Sean Murtha, of Worcester police, said: “I can confirm that police were dispatched to the residence and discovered a male and a female deceased. There were no signs of foul play. It is under investigation.”

The actress' parents had lived in Worcester for decades.
