Catherine Bach's Husband Found Dead

Peter Lopez, the husband of “Dukes of Hazzard” star Catherine Bach, has died.

A source told Access the death may have been the result of the lawyer committing suicide earlier today at the couple’s home in Encino, Calif.

A publicist for Bach issued the following statement to Access Hollywood: “The Lopez Family has suffered a tragic personal loss. Catherine and the girls ask for your prayers.”

Lopez worked at the legal firm of Kleinberg, Lopez, Lange, Cuddy & Klein LLP.

He represented singers including Andrea Bocelli and Michael Buble.

Lopez was also a music attorney for the late Michael Jackson.

Bach played the iconic role of Daisy Duke on the long-running TV series.
