Now that the coroner's report is public, harrowing details surrounding the suicide of Marie Osmond's son Michael Bryan reveal that the 18-year-old had attempted to kill himself on prior occasions. The autopsy did confirm that no drugs were found in Bryan's system at the time of his death.
In 2007, Bryan (who legally changed his last name from Blosil, the surname of his adoptive father and Osmond's ex-husband, Brian Blosil) had gone to rehab for unspecified reasons. According the People, the coroner's report -- which was released on Wednesday -- indicates that while drugs may not have played a part in Bryan's death, it seems depression did: the document states that Bryan "outlined his unhappiness with his life and his intent to kill himself."
On the night of his suicide, the investigation found that Bryan had texted his friend Ruthann Clawson to tell her he "felt like sh**" and that he had left a note for her in his apartment. Clawson eventually found the note and, soon after, discovered Bryan's body on the ground below his balcony.
Clawson apparently told investigators that on three prior occasions, Bryan had attempted suicide by hanging. Bryan's roommate claimed the troubled teen had been suffering from an undisclosed illness in the days leading up to his death.
Osmond, 50, laid her son to rest in Provo, Utah, on March 8.
