Ask Jacky… Did Howard E. Rollins Die From Aids?by Jacky Jasper
Do you have any ideal how Howard Rollins died? Some people say aids, some say pneumonia. Did you ever meet him?
I never met Howard E. Rollins, but I’m told the actor used to shoot up cocaine and had a thing for cross-dressing and off camera was a flamboyant homosexual. People I’ve spoken to that knew Rollin’s, say he really liked intravenous drugs.
It’s long been reported that Rollins died of lymphoma, the claim he died from Aids, while possible, has never been conclusively determined and any claim otherwise is just speculation.
On a side note: In my opinion, Howard Rollins was great in the movie “Soldier’s Story”.
Hope I answered your question!
