The death two weeks ago of actor Jonathan Brandis, who starred as a teenage techno-prodigy on NBC’s undersea drama “SeaQuest DSV” in the 1990s, has been ruled a suicide, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office said Tuesday.

Brandis, 27, hanged himself in a hallway of his apartment complex on Nov. 11, said coroner spokesman David Campbell.

Campbell said no suicide note was found, and investigators were “not aware of any history or issue” that would suggest a reason for suicide. Yet the medical examiner found no reason to suspect foul play, he added.
