Actress Eva LaRue, the ex-wife of late John Callahan, has been reeling in the wake of his untimely death in March. Callahan passed away on March 28 at the age of 66 after suffering a stroke. The actor played Edmund Grey on ABC’s All My Children from 1992 to 2005. It was during this time that he met Eva, who played his love interest, Maria Santos. The couple were married in 1996 and parted ways in 2004.
Now, the actress who is still reeling from her ex-husband’s unexpected death said that John’s identity was allegedly stolen in a home burglary shortly after his sudden death.
In an interview with FoxNews, the 53-year-old actress, claimed that someone had broken into the actor’s house and stole his possessions following his death. She also described the mourning process as a “roller coaster.”
LaRue, who is the mother of Callahan’s 18-year-old daughter Kaya, told Fox News, “It has definitely been a roller coaster because not only is my daughter grieving so hard, but I’m grieving separately in my way, too, because he has been my great friend.”
Continuing further, Eva said, “And at the same time, somebody broke into his house right after he died and stole his identity, his car, his laptop.” Lamenting on she said, “They have been taking out loans and credit cards in his name and they’ve siphoned money out of his bank account – it’s been a nightmare. A nightmare.”
Trying to help ease the problem seems to be difficult says the actress. She elaborated that phone calls and emails have been taking much longer or have gotten nowhere. She said, “As you can imagine, every phone call is being put on hold for like 20 minutes or an hour or two hours, and then people being like, ‘I’m sorry, we can’t help you.’ It’s just like a bureaucratic nightmare,” LaRue said. “Every phone call that we make to try to fix the situation is just insane.”
The actress informed that some progress has been made in apprehending the alleged culprit. She commented, “It’s just sick and messed up.” She continued, “And I mean, the good thing is that they’re circling the wagons around this person. And so he’s going to get caught. But in the meantime, it’s wreaked such havoc for the last four months, like such crazy havoc.”
