The actor was reported missing on June 28 by his son Jesse, 34, Levin, 70, who was heard earlier that day when he called a friend to say he was lost near Cave Junction, Oregon.

His remains were finally discovered on July 13 on a remote mountain road that was so rugged that the locals told DailyMail.com that they found it too dangerous to drive on, even in a truck.

Now, police reports exclusively obtained from DailyMail.com show that Levin had been dead for days when he was found, and seemed to have fallen into a ravine trying to get help.

A report, issued by the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety, noted that the body of the actor was naked, lacked internal organs, and was trapped in trees. It also says that & # 39; there were signs of animal cleansing probably in the form of turkey vulture, because there were indications of bird droppings on and around the body & # 39;

Police and rescuers were forced to slide down the slope to retrieve his corpse, which was brought to the road via a rope and pulley system.

The body of the actor was later identified with the help of dental data and the coroner now has his death as & # 39; coincidentally & # 39; registered.

Levin & # 39; s orange Fiat car was found at the top of the canyon and contained the broken body of his pug, Boo Boo Bear, which could only be identified because the dog was still wearing its purple collar.

The actor was moving when he died and exchanged his home in the small town of Grants Pass, Oregon, for a home in the remote community of Cave Junction, 30 miles south.

Levin is supposed to have looked ahead to the move and was helped by an acquaintance named Julie Hutt, who had last seen him the day he disappeared.

It is thought that he tried to return home on a way back when he got lost and ended up on a mountain pass.

According to the report, his Fiat car was badly damaged with the passenger mirror & # 39; shifted & # 39; and he was stuck on a pile of dirt and enclosed by trees.

The local resident who discovered the body of Levin but did not want to be mentioned told DailyMail.com in July: “It seemed that he was trying to take a way back to the Grants Pass (where he lived).

& # 39; But the road he walked was remote and has no signs. It is easy to get lost and GPS is not working.

& # 39; His car was pretty broken and ran from a log. I went for a walk. I would not have driven there alone at all. I think maybe he made some bad decisions. & # 39;

He also played in the Alice TV series from 1983 and lit up an episode of Seinfeld from 1993, called The Bris, who played a mohel – a person who performs circumcision.

Neighbors living close to his $ 239,000 rented house in Grants Pass described him as & # 39; a nice guy & # 39; who was never seen without his pug.

Nina Olstead said that Levin was the first person to welcome her to the neighborhood when she moved to the area in March and said she was sad to hear that he had died.

& # 39; He was the first to welcome me on the street when I arrived and brought a bottle of wine.

& # 39; He was a very nice man and he was always with his dog – they were inseparable. He even arranged that a good friend would take care of the dog if something happened to him. However, he was not sick – the dog was; it was fat and old. & # 39;

Despite its success in the 1980s and 1990s, Levin's life seemed to take a downward turn after moving to Oregon, with the actor repeatedly experiencing difficulties with the law – including convictions for drug possession and disorderly conduct.

As a result, he became increasingly alienated from friends and family with one contact that told the police that he & # 39; no friends at all & # 39; had a fight with his son Jesse.

Verna Dassen also told the police that Levin claimed an & # 39; explosive disorder & # 39; and & # 39; hard to be friends with & # 39 ;.

In a second police report from DailyMail.com, she described him as & # 39; crazy and hard to be friends with & # 39; and he claimed to have pushed her, spit at her, and named her ugly names & # 39; after she told him to stay away.

The couple seems to have patched their fight and Dassen was one of the last people to see the actor alive and meet him on June 27.

She also said he was enthusiastic about the move to Cave Junction.

According to the police, Levin was assisted with the move by Hutt who said that she had helped him transport property to his new home on July 27 and 28.

He should have completed the move on July 1.
