NEW YORK (Reuters) - Actor and storyteller Spalding Gray, best known for writing and starring in the autobiographical film monologue, "Swimming to Cambodia", has been confirmed dead after going missing for nearly two months.
The body of the 62-year-old Gray was pulled out of the East River off Brooklyn on Sunday.
"We made a positive identification of Spalding Gray by dental and other X-rays," said Ellen Borakove, spokeswoman for the city medical examiner's office, on Monday.
No official finding had yet been made for cause of death, said Borakove, who added his family had been notified.
