Shortly after news broke of his death, The Lancaster County Coroner’s Office told TMZ that his death was ruled as a suicide.

However, the cause of death is still pending toxicology results.

Before Matthew’s death was reported on Saturday, the young actor had previously been declared missing from his university after he was “last seen walking to a parking lot” on Tuesday night.

According to the outlet, the college he attended shared the sad news with its student body.

The letter began: “It is with a grieving heart that I let you know of the death of 19-year-old Matthew Mindler from Hellertown, Pennsylvania, a first-year student at Millersville University.

“A search had been underway for Matthew since Thursday, after he was reported missing. Matthew was found deceased this morning, Saturday, August 28, in Manor Township near campus.”


Matthew had gone missing earlier last week from Millersville University.

TMZ reported that the freshman was last seen on August 24 in campus surveillance footage.

He had been wearing a white hoodie with black stripes, jeans, sneakers and a hat that covered his face.

The child actor was reported missing after he never returned to his dorm room, while police said he had not answered calls from family and friends.

Matthew left his building at 8:11 pm, officials said, after attending classes on both Monday and Tuesday.

The star’s mother, Monica, revealed that her child had not acted in years.

Aside from his role in the 2011 comedy Our Idiot Brother starring Paul Rudd, he was also featured in As The World Turns, 2013’s Frequency and in a sketch on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
