LOS ANGELES (AP) ' The Los Angeles coroner's office says former "Saturday Night Live" writer Joseph Bodolai has committed suicide in a Hollywood hotel room.

Coroner's office spokesman Craig Harvey says room service staff found the body of the 63-year-old Bodolai at 1:30 p.m. Monday in a room at Hollywood's Re-Tan Hotel. He checked into the hotel on Dec. 19.

Harvey said Tuesday that Bodolai drank a mixture of Gatorade and antifreeze. The death has been ruled a suicide.

Besides writing on 20 episodes of "Saturday Night Live" in 1981 and 1982, Bodolai was the TV producer for 20 episodes of "The Kids in the Hall" Canadian sketch comedy troupe.

Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith says there was no suicide note.
