“Deadliest Catch” Star Sig Hansen’s Cause of Death Offic

Nick McGlashan, star of Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch,” died of a drug overdose, according to an autopsy report.

McGlashan, 33, was found dead in a hotel in Nashville, Tenn., on December 27, 2020.

He died after taking a “toxic mixture of methamphetamine, cocaine, and fentanyl,” the autopsy report reveals.

McGlashan was found unresponsive in a hotel bathroom, and drug paraphernalia was found “nearby” in the bathroom. He starred in around 80 episodes of “Deadliest Catch” between 2013 and 2020.

He started crabbing at the age of 13 on his father Bruce’s boat.

He went to rehab during the 13th season of “Deadliest Catch.” McGlashan’s role Before his death, Nick McGlashan was a ground floor boss at Summer Bay after becoming a key member of Wild Bill.

Although his background was crabbing, McGlashan adapted quickly and became an asset on the Cape Caution and the Summer Bay. Given his background of crab fishing since the age of 13, it came as no surprise that McGlashan was ready to move up and up on Deadliest Catch. Of course, his battle with addiction caused serious problems in his work, but McGlashan became is a fan favorite because of his attitude and work ethic on the programme. ‘Deadliest Catch’ Star Mahlon Reyes Also Dies In 2020 It’s been a bit of sadness for the stars of “Deadliest Catch.” Beyond McGlashan dying, deckhand Mahlon Reyes also died with drugs playing a role. Reyes died in July 2020 suddenly, but no specific word on what caused his death was released until January 2021. Reyes, 38, suffered a massive heart attack.

Reports say the crab boat deckhand died of a drug overdose brought on by a powerful stimulant.

Flathead County, Mont., sheriff, and coroner, Brian Heino, say Reyes died of acute cocaine intoxication.

Heino also calls the death accidental. Initially, Reyes survived the heart attack.

An ambulance took Reyes to a hospital where he was put on life support but never regained consciousness.

His wife says his death came as a complete shock to the family as he had no known health ailments. McGlashan posted a picture of the two smiling while on board one of the ships.
