Dune actress Alicia Witt has tragically found both of her parents dead at their home in Worcester, Massachusetts.

The film star reportedly asked a relative to check on her father Robert Witt, 87, and mother Diane Witt, 75, as she had not heard from them for a while.

The 46-year-old Hollywood star said in a statement: “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.”

Local police are yet to confirm the cause of their deaths, however, they have revealed that there were no signs of foul play.

An autopsy on both of her parents will be conducted and officers apparently searched the home as they tried to come to a conclusion of their deaths.

Worcester police spokesperson Lt Sean Murtha 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 force also said that there were not any signs that showed that the couple had faced any sort of trauma.

According to reports, the actress's parents had lived in the area for decades.

The star had also grown up in Worcester before moving to Hollywood to pursue her acting career.

Her successful career first started out when she was a child, after securing TV and film appearances.
