Autopsy Proves Local Man Shot Himself
Coroner’s officials confirmed that an autopsy done Wednesday on the body of a man found dead on the porch of the home he rented in Valencia had proven that he killed himself.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner stated that Bret Thomas Mardock, died of a gunshot wound that was self-inflicted.
Officials say Mardock left his wife, Samantha, and residents of Bellis Drive where they lived, stunned after taking his own life early Monday.
Mardock had a lengthy career in television as a makeup artist.
While he worked on a number of successful TV shows such as “Melrose Place,” “Saving Grace,” “Prison Break” and “Southland” he was best known in the industry as Alyssa Milano’s personal makeup artist.
