Verne Troyer passed away with very few possessions to his name.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the final inventory and appraisal of Troyer’s estate was submitted to the court on Wednesday.
Troyer had two bank accountants in his name when he died: one for $9,384.29 and another for $68,898.87, for a grand total of $78,283.16.
A probate referee was brought in to appraise Troyer’s separate property but there were only three things to list:
- A 2015 Audi S4 with 3,490 miles on it: $38,000
- Autographed memorabilia: $21,000
- Furniture, furnishings & personal effects: $2,000
The final total for Troyer’s estate was valued at $139,283,16.
As The Blast first reported, at the time of his death, Troyer owed the state of California $22,224.70 in back taxes stemming from the years 2004 and 2005.
Verne Troyer passed away on April 21 at the age of 49. An autopsy has been performed but the cause of death is still pending toxicology results.
His family released a statement when he passed, hinting the actor may have taken his own life. It read at one point, “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.”
Officials also noted that Troyer had an “extremely high alcohol level” when he was admitted to Valley Presbyterian Hospital in Van Nuys.
We’re told while in the emergency room, the “Austin Powers” star repeated to nurses and doctors that he “wanted to die,” and soon after being admitted, suffered respiratory distress and then failure.
Troyer was placed on life support, including a ventilator to assist in his breathing. Unfortunately, he never recovered and his body began shutting down before ultimately passing away.
He had a long history of alcohol problems and has done several stints in rehab.
