Storage Wars Regular Commits Suicide
Storage Wars regular Mark Balelo committed suicide on Monday by way of carbon monoxide poisoning, according to TMZ. The Southern California resident was reportedly arrested over the weekend for a drug-related offense.
That’s where the story took a tragic turn. From TMZ:
We’re told when Balelo got out of jail he was distraught, and asked his fiancée to come over because he was afraid he might hurt himself.
We’re told they met at his office on Sunday, they talked for a few hours, he took a 4 hour nap — and when he woke up seemed better.
The fiancée left Balelo at the office Sunday evening. We’re told one of Balelo’s employees found his body Monday morning.
A National Enquirer story from last month claimed Balelo had quite the rap sheet and was facing a possible deportation from the United States as a result:

5. I am sorry to hear of anyones suicide,
like many of us, suicides have affected us deeply and closely.
As for the television show, I avoid watching it - shows that glorify taking advantage of other people's losses just don't sit right with me.
