35-Year-Old Disney Star Found Deceased In His Car

Devastating news the morning as it’s revealed Disney star Michael Mantenuto was found dead in his car this morning, according to a report by TMZ.

A Washington State coroner reported said the cause of death was suicide, by way of a self-inflicted gun wound.


Best known for his role in 2004 flick, Miracle, Mantenuto later went on to join the army, before graduating to the Special forces.

A skilled hockey player, it was his natural talent that led him to star alongside Kurt Russel in the Disney flick, Miracle.

His next project was 2006 TV film, Dirtbags, a comedy featuring Sabrina The Teenage Witch star Melissa Joan Hart.

Michael’s final role came two years later in Surfer, Dude — a US comedy about a surfer experiencing an existential crisis starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.
