Former Child Star Ordered Compound He Committed Suicide With On Amazon

Actor Matthew Mindler killed himself with sodium nitrate purchased from Amazon.

Mindler who starred in 2011’s Our Idiot Brother with Paul Rudd when he was ten suffered from crippling anxiety.

Page Six: After toxicology tests, the Lancaster County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the 19-year-old “Our Idiot Brother” actor’s death from August to be suicide by sodium nitrate toxicity, TMZ reported Thursday. In addition to the ME’s ruling, Mindler’s mom confirmed to TMZ that her son had bought the substance online to kill himself during his first days away from home at Millersville University in Pennsylvania.

Monica Mindler — who previously revealed that her son suffered from “crippling anxiety” — said she later found a clear but heartbreaking link in her son’s internet search history.
