A 64-year-old man, who was found dead in a luxury New York City apartment along with his 95-year-old mother, has been identified as an actor who landed a small role in Woody Allen’s 1989 film, Crimes and Misdemeanors. 

The bodies of William Wedell and his mother, Agnes, were discovered on Saturday when police entered their apartment in the Tate building at 535 West 23rd St, in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. 

William, who also landed a small part in It Could Happen to You starring Nicholas Cage, was identified by his sister, 61-year-old Julianna Wedell. 

Julianna told the New York Post that her mom and brother lived a ‘very quiet, almost hermit-like life’.

Authorities told the Post that William is believed to have died two days before their bodies were discovered.  

Julianna explained that their mother’s health had been declining for at least a month. William’s younger sister called the police for a wellness check due to their mother’s poor health. 

‘My brother mentioned that our mother’s health was declining before the holidays,’ Julianna told the Post. ‘He said she wasn’t eating, sleeping more.’

Julianna said they believe their mother’s death was from ‘natural causes’ but her brother’s death is ‘the shocker’.

‘He might have had a heart attack, we don’t know,’ she said.

Police do not believe that foul play was involved and the medical examiner is investigating the cause of death for both the mother and son. 

According to Julianna, her brother had moved to New York City from Chicago to pursue acting.

His mother soon followed and they had been living in their apartment for about 20-25 years.  

William was taking care of his mother when they died. It’s also unclear if they died from complications of COVID-19. 

Julianna said that her brother was responsible for doing errands, which included grocery shopping, so he could’ve been exposed to the virus at some point. 

She told the New York Daily News that her brother ‘never mentioned’ whether or not they were sick. 

‘When he spoke to my sister, he wasn’t coughing or mentioning any issues,’ Julianna said. 

Juilanna told the Daily News that their mother worked for the Union Pacific railroad.

When she moved to New York City with her son, she transferred to the company’s office in the Big Apple. 

She retired in either the late 1980s or early 1990s. She also worked temp jobs as a secretary for different companies.
