Now, however, the Travis County Medical Examiner has released a report in which it states the veteran actor suffered from bipolar disorder and Depression.

His corpse was discovered in bathtub of his home … with an apparent gunshot wound to the head; Miller was pronounced dead at the scene.

Elsewhere, a toxicology report found that Miller had ethanol (alcohol), and traces of cocaine, diphenhydramine (allergy, cold pills), marijuana and amphetamines present in his system at the time of passing.

The actor was best known for his popular roles on General Hospital and The Young and the Restless.

Miller’s manager confirmed his death in September, and then his mother released the following statement a couple days later:

“He fought a long hard valiant battle with bipolar depression for years.

“He did everything he could to control the disease. He loved his family, his friends and his fans but in the end the disease won the fight and he surrendered his life.”

He also starred in 10 episodes of the Octavia Spencer-led Apple TV+ drama, Truth Be Told; while his final credit was in a 2022 episode of NCIS.

“Too many feelings,” Chrishell Stause wrote in a social post this fall in regard to her late, former collage.

“But you are gone way too soon and I’m so happy I got to work with you all those years, but also call you a friend. I hope you are at peace now.”

“I’m so sad to hear of Billy Miller’s passing.

“His infectious charm and warmth left lasting impressions on all of us who were lucky enough to have him in our lives. Im gonna miss that mischievous smile. Love you Billy.”
