Journal-isms is reporting that Monroe was a lifelong diabetic “who at one point would undergo kidney dialysis as he slept at night so he could work as a photojournalist during the day.”
Monroe had spent the last seven years with the Baltimore Fox-affiliate.
“We will miss him terribly,” WBFF said in a statement. “He endured many ‘tests’ in life with divine strength and always, ALWAYS with a smile. Never complaining.”
Monroe’s parents told Journal-isms that a medical examiner is working to determine the cause of death.
