Deadliest Catch's Mahlon Reyes died from cocaine overdose aged 38
Deadliest Catch’s Mahlon Reyes died from a cocaine overdose aged 38, it’s been claimed.
The television star died in July, with his cause of death listed as acute cocaine intoxication, according to Flathead County Sheriff and Coroner Brian Heino.
Heino told TMZ that Mahlon’s death has been ruled as accidental.
Mahlon, who was a deckhand on one of the crab fishing boats on the Discovery Channel show Deadliest Catch, suffered a massive heart attack and was put on life support but never regained consciousness.
His wife told the publication that his death came as a complete shock to the family because he had no known existing health conditions.
She added that Mahlon was surrounded by loved ones when he died and his ashes would be scattered in the Bering Sea by his Deadliest Catch boat crew.
At the time, a Discovery Channel spokesperson said of Mahlon’s death: ‘So sad. He was so young.
‘Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.’
Mahlon had worked on two of the boats which featured in Deadliest Catch in 2015 – the Seabrooke and Cape Caution – and was also part of the fishing team led by Captain ‘Wild’ Bill Wichrowski.
Deadliest Catch first aired in 2015 on the Discovery Channel, and follows fishermen in the Bering Sea during the Alaskan king crab and snow crab fishing season.
Mahlon is survived by his wife and four children.
In December, fellow Deadliest Catch star Nick McGlashan was found dead aged 33.
