This is Mahlon Reyes, one of the intrepid crab fishermen in the Alaskan Sea.
Mahlon Reyes was one of the sailors of the crab fishing boats of the Deadliest Catch program , a particular Discovery Channel cycle that reflects the harsh conditions in which these intrepid sailors work in Alaska.
In late July of last year, Reyes passed away in Whitefish, Montana, after suffering a massive heart attack and unsuccessfully receiving vital medical assistance. At the time, the sailor’s wife told TMZ that his death was a total shock to the family, because Mahlon had no known pre-existing health conditions.
However, the same site now confirmed that the member of Deadliest Catch died of a cocaine overdose.
Mahlon’s cause of death is listed as acute cocaine intoxication, according to Flathead County Sheriff and Coroner Brian Heino. The same source stated that the death has been declared accidental.
Mahlon’s death occurred while he was rehabilitating a torn Achilles tendon, an accident he suffered while fishing for crabs. According to those close to him, Reyes was “working hard” to return to Alaska for another crab season.
The man, who worked on ships called Seabrooke and Cape Caution, was only 38 years old.
