Verne Troyer‘s death has officially been ruled a suicide … TMZ has confirmed.
The L.A. County Coroner’s Office released an autopsy report Wednesday saying the ‘Austin Powers’ star died of “sequelae of alcohol intoxication” … basically alcohol abuse. Shortly after his death, the Coroner’s Office “deferred” Verne’s cause of death … pending an investigation. The Coroner’s Office has now determined alcohol abuse is what killed the actor.
As we reported … Verne struggled with alcoholism for years and had been to rehab many times. In early April, Verne had been rushed to a hospital after cops got a call that he was suicidal. We were told he was being treated for alcohol poisoning because his BAC was triple the .08 limit.
He’d been on life support ever since — but, as TMZ first reported, he died a few weeks later. He was 49.
