The reports, which have been obtained by the Daily Mail, also state there was evidence of “animal scavenging likely in the form of turkey vultures”.

It is thought that Levin, who was 70, lost his way while driving through a backroad. His dog was found deceased in his car, which was discovered at the top of the slope.

His death was recorded as an accident.

Levin appeared in a 1993 episode of US sitcom Seinfeld. His character, a mohel who performs circumcisions under Jewish law, memorably cuts the lead character’s finger.

His other credits include Woody Allen films Annie Hall and Manhattan. He also appeared as a guest star in TV shows including The Twilight Zone and Night Court.
