The death of Marie Osmond's son, Michael Bryan, has officially been ruled a suicide by the Los Angeles Coroner, which announced the news on Wednesday afternoon.

The Coroner's office reported that Bryan — who died on February 26 — died of multiple blunt trauma, after he jumped off of a balcony in Los Angeles. No drugs were found in the 18-year-old's system, toxicology reports concluded.

A friend of Michael's – Ruthann Clawson – reportedly said that Bryan had previously attempted suicide three times by hanging, TMZ reported.

According to TMZ, witness statements contained within the coroner's report claimed Bryan was suffering from depression following some "bad school grades and a recent visit from a former girlfriend."

Additionally, Clawson reportedly told authorities that on the night Bryan died, he texted her that he was "feeling like sh**," and also, "I have a letter for you on my bed," according to TMZ.

When Clawson went to find him, she found Bryan had jumped.

Following her son's death, Osmond canceled a week of shows with her brother, Donny Osmond, in Las Vegas.

A funeral for Bryan was held on March 8 in Provo, Utah, which was attended by about 450 people.
