This is so sad, Harris Wittels known for co-exec producing “Parks & Recreation” and for his work on other comedies, has died of a possible drug overdose, sources confirm. He was 30.

According to Variety.com
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, Wittels was found by his assistant at around noon Thursday at his home in the Los Feliz area. Wittels was open about his struggles with drug addiction, speaking about them on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast last September, and he had been to rehab twice.
“Parks and Recreation” will air its final episode next Tuesday. He also appeared in the show in a small role as an incompetent animal control employee.

The Houston native has a large Twitter following, and he is credited with creating the popular term “Humblebrag.” In 2012 he published “Humblebrag: The Art of False Modesty,” based on the tweets culled from a Twitter account he ran.
