Mark Balelo, a star of A&E’s Storage Wars, was found dead in his car.
Balelo, 40, was determined to have died after inhaling carbon monoxide and car exhaust fumes. He was discovered by one of his employees in the garage of his auction house in Simi Valley, Calif, on Feb. 11.
On Feb. 9, Balelo had been arrested for a drug-related offense, and on Feb. 10, his fiancée reportedly visited him, following a request by him to come see him.
Balelo spent most of his childhood in Brazil, before moving to San Diego, then Newport Beach, and then finally Los Angeles. He sold expensive European cars in Los Angeles until the economic crash of 2008.
He then began to sell his things on eBay, which started his empire.
