Child actor Matthew Mindler died by suicide, it has been ruled.

A statement from Millersville University president Daniel A Wubah announced that Matthew had died.
“It is with a grieving heart that I let you know of the death of 19-year-old Matthew Mindler from Hellertown, Pennsylvania, a first-year student at Millersville University,” said the statement.
