In Autopsy’s latest episode on Gary Coleman, forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter reveals new evidence suggesting that the 42-year-old actor may have taken his own life.

“I have already ruled out complications due to dialysis and heart problems being directly responsible for Gary’s death,” said Hunter.

As revealed in the episode, Coleman had a history of suicide attempts that date back to 1982.

Dr. Hunter confessed he discovered proof that the actor made another attempt to end his life in July of 2007: "He called police and he told them that he’d taken an overdose of Oxycontin and he wanted to die."
