Trevor Goddard overdosed on drugs

LOS ANGELES, June 10 — Australian actor Trevor Goddard, who played Lt. Cmdr. Mic Brumby on the long-running CBS series “JAG,†was found dead at his North Hollywood home of a suspected drug overdose, authorities said Monday. Goddard’s girlfriend discovered his body lying on a bed at about noon Sunday, Los Angeles County coroner’s office spokesman Craig Harvey said.

A PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION indicated his death was a possible suicide by an overdose of as-yet unknown “illicit, illegal†drugs, Harvey said.

Notes were discovered at Goddard’s home, but investigators did not characterize them as suicide notes, he said. “There was nothing in the notes indicating that he meant to take his life,†Harvey said. The notes were addressed to a friend.

Investigators think Goddard died sometime after 9 p.m. on Saturday after having a telephone conversation with a friend from his home, Harvey said. An autopsy is set for Tuesday.

A former professional boxer, Goddard was “discovered†while competing at a light-heavyweight bout and asked to appear in a series of beer commercials, according to his Web site.

He built a career on portraying villains in many of Hollywood’s top action movies, including tough-guy Kano in New Line Cinema’s “Mortal Kombat.â€

He was best known to U.S. audiences from his recurring small screen role as Mic Brumby on the military drama “Jag†from 1998 to 2001.

Goddard had just completed work on “Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl†with Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom.

The news says the family is rejecting the idea that it was a suicide and that Goddard had plans to take his son(s) to the opening of Pirates of the Carribean this weekend. They deny he was depressed or suicidal and say they think it was an accidental overdose.

Any time you mess with illicite drugs and you die is it really an accident? You know what the drugs can do when you take them.

He was a polite guy. A group of my friends and I met him one time in Perth.


You never know what is in illicit drugs. I know how many of them are made, (studying chemistry), and quite frankly I can't figure out why people would risk their lives for an artificial 'high'.

Working from home I leave the TV on as background noise. Over the past few weeks I've gotten into the habit of watching the JAG reruns on in the afternoon. I've enjoyed the show and like his character. It's very sad no matter what the reason.
