MTV reality star Danny Dias was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment on Saturday, June 3. He was 34.


Dias starred on season 13 of Road Rules in 2004 alongside Derrick KosinksiJodi Weatherton, and Patrick Maloney. He then appeared in The Challenge in 2005, but was eliminated after four episodes.

“Police discovered a 34-year-old male unconscious and unresponsive,” the New York Police Public Information Officer said. “The EMS responded and pronounced the male deceased at the scene. No criminality suspected at this time. The Medical Examiner is going to determine the cause of death. There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.”

According to TMZ, a friend of the actor grew worried about him when he hadn’t heard from Dias for two days. The friend checked on Dias and found him dead in his apartment bedroom. It appears that drugs were involved in the death. A source claims that the friend saw Dias take LSD and mushrooms and retreat to his room, and that was the last time he saw him alive.

Dias attended Westminster Choir College at Rider University in New Jersey, where he majored in music education, and graduated in 2003.
