‘Storage Wars’ Star Mark Balelo Commits Suicide

Facebook: Mark Balelo on Storage Wars

Mark Balelo, who appeared on several episodes of “Storage Wars” over the last several seasons on A&E, committed suicide today at his home, according to a report from TMZ.

According to TMZ’s report, Balelo was found dead in his car in his garage after he killed himself by carbon monoxide poisoning.

Balelo had been arrested last weekend for drug-related charges, and was apparently distraught when he was released from prison. TMZ reports he asked his fiance to come to his house out of fears he might hurt himself.

TMZ reports one of Balelo’s employees found him in his garage this morning.

Balelo owned a store in Simi Valley, Calif., called Balelo, Inc., according to the company’s website and Facebook page.

He was often known as “Rico Suave” on the show for wearing fancy clothes and bringing large amounts of money to the auctions. He appeared four times in Season 2 and once in Season 3.
