The toxicology report indicates that Sawyer had marijuana or "cannabinoid" in his system.

The 19-year-old, along with his twin brother Sullivan and their sister Madylin, played Ray Romano and Patricia Heaton's TV kids on the CBS show from 1996 to 2005.

As Radar reported, according to Sawyer's cousin, Jacklyn Stines, 64, Sawyer may have been suffering from depression, "I've heard he was depressed, but I don't know what exactly about," she said. "There is a history of depression in the family, all through. Many of them are on medication for depression."
