NEW YORK (AP) - A grandson of the late screen actress Rita Hayworth has been found dead in an apparent suicide in New York City.

Police say 25-year-old Andrew Embiricos was discovered in his Manhattan apartment Sunday night with a bag over his head. He was pronounced dead at the scene. No crime is suspected.

A spokeswoman for the medical examiner’s office says the cause of his death is pending autopsy results.

Embiricos was the son of Hayworth’s daughter Yasmin Aga Khan, a philanthropist known for publicizing the plight of those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Hayworth was a legendary beauty who rose to fame in the 1940s and ‘50s in movies such as “Cover Girl” and “Gilda.” She died in 1987 of Alzheimer’s disease at age 68.
