AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. (AP) – Actress Debralee Scott, who appeared in the sitcom “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman” and some of the “Police Academy” movies, has died, her family said. She was 52.

Scott died April 5 at her home in Amelia Island of natural causes, said her sister, Jeri Scott, a talent manager in Beverly Hills.

Scott came from a family of show-business insiders. Her eldest sister, Scott Bushnell, produced many of director Robert Altman’s films.

Scott got her first major role at age 22, playing Cathy Shumway on “Mary Hartman.” She later played the role of Hotsy Totsy on the show “Welcome Back, Kotter,” and acted in 1984’s “Police Academy” and 1986’s “Police Academy 3: Back in Training.”

She had been engaged to John Dennis Levi, a police officer with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey who was killed in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

Scott had just moved to north Florida to be with her older sister.

Funeral plans were pending.
