A former writer on NBC’s "Saturday Night Live" was found dead yesterday in a Los Angeles hotel room, and police suspect it was a suicide, reports TMZ.com.

The body of Joe Bodolai, 63, was found by a cleaning crew, the story reports. Authorities suspect suicide because a bottle was reportedly found in the room that contained a mixture of Gatorade and antifreeze.

Additionally, in Bodolai’s last blog entry, posted Dec. 23, the writer penned a piece titled "If This Were Your Last Day Alive What Would You Do?"

The blog entry features a list called "Things I Am Proud Of," which includes "writing the first draft of ‘Wayne’s World’ with Mike Myers."

He wraps up the blog with these words: "May you all have the happy lives you deserve. Thank you all for being in my life."
