Almost three months after comedian and actor Trevor Moore passed away suddenly, his cause of death has been announced. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner officially ruled his death as an accident.
According to a PEOPLE report, the 41-year-old died from blunt force trauma to his head. While some reports speculated that his Aug. 7 death could be suicide-related, that isn’t the case per the coroner’s findings. Yet the medical examiner-coroner didn’t reveal any further details about how Trevor Moore died.
However, TMZ reported in August that he allegedly fell off his home’s balcony. If that’s true, it’s fairly safe to assume what may have happened. It sounds like he accidentally fell off the balcony and landed on his head, which led to the blunt force trauma injury that sadly took his life.
Trevor Moore’s manager shared a statement on behalf of his client’s family following his sudden death. The manager relayed heartbreaking words from Moore’s wife, Aimee Carlson.
“We are devastated by the loss of my husband, best friend, and the father of our son. He was known as a writer and comedian to millions, and yet to us he was simply the center of our whole world,” the statement said.
“We don’t know how we’ll go on without him, but we’re thankful for the memories we do have that will stay with us forever,” the statement continued. “We appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received from everyone. This is a tragic and sudden loss and we ask that you please respect our privacy during this time of grieving.”
Trevor Moore Honored by Friends, WKUK Co-Founders
Trevor Moore is most well-known as a co-founder of the NYC-based comedy troupe the Whitest Kids U’ Know (WKUK). He and two friends from Manhattan’s School of Visual Arts, Zach Cregger and Sam Brown, created the sketch-comedy group in 1999.
Timmy Williams and Darren Trumeter later joined the three friends as official members. In 2007, the group starred in a WKUK television show that aired on Fuse and later IFC. The popular sketch-comedy show filmed 60 episodes over five seasons from 2007 to 2011.
In August, the group’s other two co-founders Cregger and Brown shared a statement about their dear friend’s death.
“Early this morning, we learned that we lost our brother, our collaborator and the driving force behind WKUK. He was our best friend. And we speak for all of us in saying that the loss of Trevor is unimaginable,” the statement said.
“We are heartbroken and our grief pales in comparison to the loss felt by his wife and son,” the comedy group’s statement continued. “On behalf of WKUK, we ask for privacy during our time of profound grief, and strength for his family who are dealing with the impossible thought of living life without him. Our hope is that friends, fellow artists, and fans that loved him will not focus on his death, but will remember the countless moments of laughter he gave them.”
