(Photo by Michael Tran/FilmMagic) The death of "Austin Powers" actor Verne Troyer has been certified as a suicide, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner's office said Wednesday.

According to the coroner's office, Troyer died in April from sequelae of alcohol intoxication. Sequelae refers to a condition that was the consequence of a previous disease or injury.

Troyer died after being taken by paramedics from his North Hollywood, California home to a hospital in Van Nuys for reported alcohol intoxication. He was 49.

"Verne was also a fighter when it came to his own battles. Over the years he's struggled and won, struggled and won, struggled and fought some more, but unfortunately this time was too much," read the statement. "Depression and Suicide are very serious issues. You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it's never too late to reach out to someone for help."

The actor was hospitalized earlier that week after emergency personnel responded to a call at his residence. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told TheWrap that there was a call regarding a medical emergency, resulting in Troyer being transported to a local hospital.
