Wyatt’s wife Silvina told TMZ her husband took his own life because he wanted to escape the “physical and emotional pain” after recovering from a bout of cancer treatments.

Silvina went on to say that radiation therapy:

“Left him in both physical and emotional pain, he was tired of the pain and after much contemplation, chose to end his life in a beautiful and a serene place.”

The results of Knight’s autopsy hasn’t been released as of yet. Knight was best known for his work in the Porky’s trilogy.

We wish the best for Wyatt’s wife in this difficult time.
