Verne Troyer’s Cause of Death Revealed

Verne Troyer’s Cause of Death Revealed”

The Los Angeles County County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner released an autopsy report on Troyer's death, ruling that the actor died from a "sequelae of alcohol intoxication".

"The manner of death was certified as a suicide", the coroner added.

Troyer's representatives had said last April he'd been struggling with depression and thoughts of suicide.

Post-mortem toxicology testing was not performed due to "prolonged hospitalization", the report stated.

His death came a year after he announced on Facebook that he was being treated for alcohol addiction, which he had battled in the past, according to CNN.

His representatives said at the time he was struggling with depression.

The actor, best known for playing Mini-Me in the Austin Powers films, died in April at the age of 49.

It continued: "Verne was also a fighter when it came to his own battles. And always know, it's never too late to reach out to someone for help".

He managed to call an ambulance to his home and said repeatedly during the emergency call that he wanted to die.

The Austin Powers films made the star - who was born with cartilage-hair hypoplasia - famous, leading to roles in other big projects, including Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

Three years later, a video of Troyer's drunken antics from his time on the VH1 reality series "The Surreal Life" went viral and is now remembered as "one of the best moments in reality TV history". He was also in rehab on numerous occasions to treat his addiction.

Upon his passing, a statement from Troyer's family read, "Verne was an extremely caring individual".

This sad news comes just a day after World Mental Health Day, which saw celebrities speak out about their experiences with mental health problems and how they deal with them.
