PORTLAND, Ore. – Police have confirmed that a body found in July in a southern Oregon ravine was that of missing actor Charles Levin, who played numerous roles on television comedies such as “Seinfeld” and “Night Court.”
The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Tuesday that police reports confirmed the body as the 70-year-old actor.
His death was ruled as accidental.
Police were contacted July 8 by Levin’s son Jesse, who reported his father missing. He was last seen June 27.
His car was found July 13, with the remains of his dog, a pug named Boo Boo, inside.
A body was found outside the car and was believed to be Levin’s, but police didn’t confirm the identity until this week.
Levin played a character who performs circumcisions on a “Seinfeld” episode.
