Cindy Morgan, best known for her breakout role in the 1980 film “Caddyshack”, has died at age 69.

Morgan died at her home in Lake Worth Beach, Fla., according to TMZ, who was first to report the news.

Per the outlet, Morgan’s roommate came home from a trip on Dec. 30, 2023 and knocked on her bedroom door to no response.

She smelled a strong odor coming from the room and called the cops, who pronounced her dead at the scene.

Her roommate last saw her alive on Dec. 19.

Foul play is not suspected, and a rep from the county told TMZ she died from “natural causes.”

Morgan played blond bombshell Lacey Underall in “Cadyshack” opposite with Chevy Chase and Bill Murray.

“Caddyshack was my first film and I’ll say that the end product was so completely different, it was originally about the caddie,” she recalled in a 2012 MegaCon Orlando interview.
