Former MTV reality show contestant Danny Dias was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment on Monday. He was 33.
Danny Dias Cause of Death
Drugs are believed to have played a role in Dias’ death though the official cause of death is still under investigation.
The 33-year-old, who appeared on Season 13 of “Road Rules,” reportedly took LSD or mushrooms on Sunday when he freaked out and ran into his room, a friend who was at the apartment told TMZ.
The friend called him over the next two days but did not receive any response, prompting him to go Dias’ apartment to check on him. There he found him dead in his bedroom, TMZ reports.
Dias was originally from Linden, New Jersey, but was currently living in Brooklyn. He attended Westminster Choir College of Rider University from 2001 to 2003 where he majored in music education.
He appeared on “Road Rules” in 2004 and later on “The Challenge” in 2005 before being eliminated after four episodes.
The music group Cypress Hill expressed their condolences via Facebook.
