An autopsy performed by the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner has determined that Cowie died from acute and chronic alcohol abuse.
The actor, 52, was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment on Sept. 3. His death was reported to be the result of an apparent suicide.
An investigation is underway to determine the cause of death, which was likely caused by excessive alcohol use. Aside from his involvement in the show, Cowie also starred in the upcoming Netflix movie Tiger King.
According to the New York Police Department, Cowie died of acute and chronic alcohol abuse. The incident took place on Friday, and his body was found face down in a bed. His friend discovered him.
While he had admitted to drinking in the past, he denied rumors that he was a meth addict. Before his death, Cowie had been busted for drunk driving in Oklahoma. He pled guilty and did not appear for sentencing, but was arrested anyway. In the meantime, he had been spotted by an undercover cop, and he was caught.
