Police tell TheWrap that there’s evidence the former reality TV personality ingested LSD and hallucinogenic mushrooms prior to his death

Danny Dias, former star of MTV’s “Road Rules,” was found dead of a possible suicide on Monday, a spokesman for the New York Police Department told TheWrap on Wednesday. Dias was 34.

According to the police spokesman, Dias was pronounced dead at the scene in Brooklyn, after responders found him at approximately 1 p.m.

The spokesman said that authorities found evidence of drug use, specifically hallucinogenic mushrooms and LSD.

Dias’ death is currently under investigation. The cause of death will ultimately be determined by the medical examiner, the police spokesman said.

According to TMZ, a friend of Dias’ who’d been hanging around with the former reality TV personality at Dias’ Brooklyn apartment on Saturday told police that he’d seen Dias ingest what he thought to be LSD and mushrooms. Dias became disturbed and ran into his room. After leaving the apartment and trying to contact Dias over the next two days, the friend placed a 911 call on Monday.

TMZ reports that Dias had two vertical cuts on his forearm, indicating a possible suicide.

Dias appeared on the 13th season of the series, airing in 2004.
