Charles' Tragic Fate
Documents from the department revealed that Levin had been dead for days after discovering his body at the bottom of a 30-foot ravine. His body was naked and wedged between two trees.
The department's report indicated that there were signs of "animal scavenging likely in the form of turkey vultures" -- as proven by the presence of bird faeces on and around the body.
The police reportedly had to scale a slope and retrieve his body using a rope-and-pulley system.
The unnamed local who discovered his body and car told The Daily Mail that it looked like he was trying to take a back route to Grants Pass, but the road he went down was remote and did not have any signs.
"It's easy to get lost, and GPS doesn't work," the local said.
"His car was pretty banged up and was off a logging trail. I went up on foot, hiking. I wouldn't have driven up there by myself. No way. I think he might have made a few bad decisions."
As per the latest reports, the death of the Seinfeld star Charles Levin has been ruled as accidental.
Levin's son spoke about his dad, saying he was "incredibly comedic and was extremely charming and what happened was very sad."
The actor had a long career in Hollywood. He also starred in "The Golden Girls," "Family Ties," "The Twilight Zone," "Night Court," "Doogie Howser," "This Is Spinal Tap" and "Law and Order."
