Deadliest Catch star Nick McGlashan’s death is believed to be drugs related, the police have claimed.
The 33-year-old US TV personality, born Bruce McGlashan, was found dead by pals in his hotel room in Nashville, Tennessee, with an autopsy report currently pending.
A statement released by the Nashville police read: ‘The individual, Bruce McGlashon, age 33, was deceased upon arrival of paramedics and officers [sic].
‘The death is unclassified at present pending a report of autopsy findings from the Medical Examiner’s Office.
‘Evidence indicated the possibility of drug involvement. Toxicology testing is part of the autopsy process.’
Nick had previously spoken about his battle with drug addiction, and was suspended from Deadliest Catch’s 13th season in order to seek rehab treatment.
In a blog post in 2017, titled ‘The Deadliest Disease’, Nick came clean about his addiction and admitted he had already overdosed several times.
At the time, he had been a year into recovery.
He wrote: ‘To say I was lost would be an understatement.
‘I was broken and soulless. I was living without any hope of happiness. All I wanted was to stay loaded. Every bit of happiness stripped away by a powerful, cunning, and baffling disease.’
Upon news of his death, the team at Discovery Channel released a statement paying tribute to their friend and co-worker.
‘Our deepest sympathy goes out to Nick’s loved ones during this difficult time,’ they wrote.
‘Nick came from a long line of crabbers and was known for his great depth of knowledge.
‘He also had a sharp sense of humor even in the most difficult conditions. He will be deeply missed by all those who knew him.’
