New and disturbing details have emerged about the death of "Seinfeld" actor Charles Levin in the Oregon wilderness earlier this year.

Chilling new details just emerged in the death of “Seinfeld” actor Charles Levin. The 70-year-old was found dead in Oregon earlier this year, weeks after his family reported him missing.

Levin’s Body Discovered

Fox News reported that Levin was reported missing by his son on June 28 after the actor called a friend to say he was lost near Cave Junction in Oregon.

Two weeks later, on July 13, Levin’s body was found in a slope near the road, and police had to use ropes and pulleys just to get to the remains.

Disturbing new reports say that when police found Levin’s body, it had partially been consumed by what officials believe were turkey vultures.

According to Page Six, Levin’s body was discovered nude without “external genitalia present,” and he had been dead for days by the time he was found.

Levin’s orange Fiat was found near his body along with the remains of his beloved pug Boo Boo Bear, who was identified by his collar.

He Succumbed To The Elements

Levin was in the process of moving to another state at the time of his death, and police think he likely got lost on his way to his new home. The area where his body was found is notoriously difficult to navigate, as there are few signs and GPS does not work there.

Police believe that after losing his way, Levin eventually succumbed to the elements, and they said that his body did not have “any obvious sign of injury.”

While Levin’s head was still attached to his body at the time it was found, there was reportedly “significant decay around the mouth” exposing his jaw. His body eventually had to be identified using dental records.

What a tragic end to an otherwise wonderful life.
