The former child TV star was found dead back in January inside his L.A. area home. At the time, foul play was not suspected. The M.E.’s report says his body was in a “state of mild decomposition.”

Law enforcement later told TMZ, his death was likely the result of an overdose … adding the manager at Adam’s apartment building found his lifeless body inside the bathroom and there was also a white powder substance, believed to be drugs.
