Seinfeld Actor's Decomposed Body Found Partially Eaten By Vultures
Actor Charles Levin’s body was found in a remote ravine in Oregon in July.
Despite being found dead several months ago, it has today been revealed in police documents obtained by NBC News that 'Seinfeld' actor Charles Levin, 70, died from an accidental fall.
Levin had reportedly become lost while driving his orange Fiat on June 28 in Cave Junction, Oregon, where he eventually left his car and seemingly fell down into a remote ravine.
Levin's son first reported him missing on June 28 after his father called a friend to say he was lost near Cave Junction.
Authorities didn’t discover the actor's body until July 13, at which point it had been partially eaten by vultures and maggots. The remains of his pet pug, Boo Boo Bear, were also found in his nearby car.
Police believe Levin fell trying to find help, adding that he had been found naked without “external genitalia present” -- and had been partially consumed by vultures.
Authorities reportedly had to use a rope and pulley system to retrieve the actor's remains.
“There were signs of animal scavenging likely in the form of turkey vultures as there was evidence of bird faeces on and around the body,” the report stated.
Levin played the Mohel in the 1993 'Seinfeld' episode “The Bris", and was also best known for portraying Elliot Novak in the sitcom “Alice.”
