Storage Wars regular Mark Balelo committed suicide on Monday by way of carbon monoxide poisoning, according to TMZ. The Southern California resident was reportedly arrested over the weekend for a drug-related offense.
That’s where the story took a tragic turn. From TMZ:
We’re told when Balelo got out of jail he was distraught, and asked his fiancée to come over because he was afraid he might hurt himself.
We’re told they met at his office on Sunday, they talked for a few hours, he took a 4 hour nap — and when he woke up seemed better.
The fiancée left Balelo at the office Sunday evening. We’re told one of Balelo’s employees found his body Monday morning.
