Los Angeles Fire Department Bills Verne Troyer's Estate for Ambulance Ride

Los Angeles Fire Department Bills Verne Troyer's Estate for Ambulance Ride

Wednesday, the Los Angeles County coroner ruled Troyer's death a suicide as a result "sequelae of alcohol intoxication", which means he died of alcohol abuse.

The coroner's office certified that the manner of death was a suicide.

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

In 2002, Troyer almost died from alcohol poisoning after going on a bender following his split from wife Genevieve Gallen after she chose to end their marriage of two months. As Radar previously reported, the actor was rushed from his North Hollywood home to a Van Nuys hospital for a medical emergency on April 3.

After his hospitalisation a year ago, he was candid about his drinking problem, saying he had followed up with a stint at a rehab centre.

After being in hospital a year ago and completing a stint in rehab, he spoke of his battle with alcohol and said: "As you know, I've battled alcohol addiction in the past and while it's not always been an easy fight, I'm willing to continue my fight day by day".

The post added: "Depression and suicide are very serious issues".

It also talked about his battle with depression. Be kind to one another.

The actor, who was best known for portraying Mini-Me in the Austin Powers movies, died on April 21, 2018. However, he was candid about battling alcohol addiction.

Troyer appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in the United Kingdom in 2009 and in a number of reality TV shows. He was also in rehab on numerous occasions to treat his addiction. He wanted to make everyone smile, be happy, and laugh. But he brought it off the page, better than written, and we kept just giving him more and more stuff to do.

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