Washington: Investigators have finally closed the case into actor Gary Coleman’s death, concluding his demise was an accident.

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 labelled Gary`s death an "accident."

Indeed the autopsy concludes Coleman was in terrible shape before he died.

"[Gary] was an accident waiting to happen. The last time I saw him he literally looked gray,” quoted a rep for the Santaquin Police as saying.
