There was no suicide note found, however, it was claimed that alcohol may have been a factor as empty bottles had been found in Moore’s house.

The publication reports that the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner will make the final determination on the star’s cause of death after toxicology reports.

The star was the cofounder of the sketch comedy troupe The Whitest Kids U Know, and hosted The Trevor Moore Talk Show on Comedy Central.
