Gary Coleman's Death Probe -- Case Closed

10/5/2010 1:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

No one murdered Gary Coleman ... this according to investigators who finally closed the case into the actor's untimely demise. 

Gary Coleman

The decision to shut down the investigation comes just weeks after cops in Utah received and reviewed Coleman's autopsy report -- in which the coroner labeled Gary's death an "accident."

Indeed the autopsy concludes Coleman was in terrible shape before he died.  A rep for the Santaquin Police tells us, "[Gary] was an accident waiting to happen.  The last time I saw him he literally looked gray.” 

FYI -- no one was ever suspected of killing Gary ... but his kinda-sorta wife Shannon Price did release an unsolicited statement denying any involvement in Coleman's death.

This is sad. As long as that 'kinda-sorta' wife doesn't inherit one cent, I guess this is as good as it will get for Gary's case. He was a very sick guy. Rest in peace.

Millions of people share the opinion that Gary's ex-wife was largely responsible for his not being alive today!

Her recorded stories do not match what was told the police so I doubt very seriously that there was a thorough investigation of of facts and cir***stances associated with his death!

What irks me more than anything was seeing his ex-wife hovering over his body making a fist toward his face!

Her face showed no manner of being grief stricken, instead the first impression is that she was boasting about what happened to him!

It is a travesty of justice that his ex-wife is not being held accountable for any of her actions related to his death

I'm sure his ex knew Utah police didn't care enough a this black skinned man to conduct a thorough investigation into his death.

It is just sickening and I'm sure she is gloating her a*ss off!

Thats sad. Any normal person who listened to those tapes know that she killed him. She will have to live the rest of her life knowing what she did and what goes around always comes around. She will get whats coming to her.

Never die in Mormon country. If a Mormon murdered you, you will get off with a wink and a nod. Poor Gary. It's VERY clear what took place here but they just don't care to do something about it.

Gary deserved much better than he ever got in this life. There's a special place in hell for his parents and useless wife. RIP Gary.

Really? No one ever suspected her involvement? That is flat out untrue. Maybe no official ever went on record saying she was a suspect, but a lot of people thought this.

Gary Coleman NEVER should have left Colorado. Life is different in Utah. It is a weird state full of strange people, and a black man like Gary would NEVER receive justice, no matter what happened. He never had a chance. He lived in a backward ass hillbilly town out in the middle of nowhere, and you can bet your life NOBODY CARES. You are in the land of a bunch of Mormon freak jobs that couldn't care less about him or the fact that he was ever a celebrity. If you are not a MORMOON freak job, stay the hell out of this ****ed up state.

Seems to me that the medical examiner is really saying that Gary would have died soon anyway so why bother looking in to his death any further.

You hit the nail right on the head Carvey. So if he were healthier they'd look into this more? What a joke. We ALL KNOW the red-headed beast from hell rose from her primordial swamp and snuck up behind Gary smashing him with one of her gnarled claws...This bit ch got away with murder no doubt about it. If anyone see her on the street just point and shout MURDERER at her. Having said that, GC really was a miserable little fcker but her didn’t deserve to be struck down by this wildebeest

If he'd been healthier I'm sure they would have just come up with a different explanation for not looking further in to his death. His ill health was just a convenient excuse for them.

As for the rest of your comments... Spot on, Whamo. I agree with every one of them 100%.

Why is it so hard to accept that a very sick Gary Coleman suffered a seizure or fainted and struck his head and died. He was in poor health health undergoing kidney dialysis. Just because his exwife is a insensitive moneygrubber does not make her a murderer.

HIS DEATH WAS OBVIOUSLY FOUL PLAY.
EVEN STEVIE WONDER CAN SEE THAT !!!!
SOUNDS LIKE SOME KIND OF COVER UP.
GARY'S DEATH NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED BY HIGHER AUTHORITIES.

Sure, she could be innocent. And bats could fly out of Obama's butt any second too.
