Walking Dead actor Moses J Moseley was not murdered, a coroner has confirmed, but it remains unclear whether he shot himself dead deliberately or accidentally.
The 31-year-old Moseley, who who appeared on the Walking Dead from 2012 to 2015 playing the armless and jawless Mike, a pet zombie, was discovered unresponsive in his car on January 26 in Stockbridge with a gun in his lap.
A coroner’s report since obtained by TMZ, lists Moseley’s cause of death as ‘shot self with intent unknown.’
Moseley’s family have raised questions about the circumstances of his death, suggesting that he was the victim of a kidnapping and murder, which was then covered up and made to look like a suicide.
The coroner’s report appears to rule out that theory, but still leaves them with agonizing uncertainty over whether the performer died by suicide, or accidentally took his own life due to a tragic mistake.
Cops believe the actor killed himself on purpose, but his family have insisted that he was happy, and that he would never have committed suicide.
Moseley’s immediate cause of death was found to be ‘gunshot wound to head,’ but his manner of death, such as accident, suicide or homicide, ‘could not be determined’ based on the results of his autopsy.
He was found dead in his car late last month in Stockbridge, Georgia, a city on the outskirts of Atlanta, with a bullet to the head and a gun on his lap.
The celebrity news site reported that despite the coroner’s findings, Moseley’s relatives are still unconvinced that he took his own life.
Moseley’s sister, Teerea Kimbro, shared with TMZ that the family received this month a touching letter of condolences from President Joe Biden and the First Lady.
