Verne Troyer's Death Seen as 'Possible Suicide'April 24, 2018 1:35pm

Verne Troyer had an extremely high level of alcohol in his system when he called 911 for help—as in three times the legal limit for driving, reports TMZ.

The 49-year-old famous for his "Mini-Me" character died Saturday, and toxicology results are pending. “He was admitted with a very high level of alcohol in his system,” a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County coroner tells People, adding that the case was “reported as a possible suicide.” It appears Troyer himself was responsible for the latter, with TMZ reporting that he told the dispatcher and someone at the hospital that he was suicidal.

Troyer had battled alcoholism and depression for years, afflictions all too common in those with dwarfism, notes Men's Health.
