It's been two months of the unexpected passing of MTV's Road Rules star Brian Lancaster, and the cause of death of the reality star has finally been revealed.
The late actor, who appeared on the MTV reality show in 1999, had died of fentanyl, heroin and ethanol intoxication, according to the Chester County Coroner's Office. The manner of Brian's death has been considered accidental.
Dr. Christina VandePol, Chester County Coroner, said in a statement,
While some progress is being made in the battle against substance abuse, we continue to lose too many members of our community to this epidemic. Speaking with families like Mr. Lancaster's, I hear so often about how difficult it is to fight addiction and how we are losing talented and loved people to this disease.
As previously reported, Brian passed away at the age of 43 at Phoenixville Hospital in Phoenixville, Pa. on March 29.
But at the time, Brian's cause of death was considered as heart failure as he had a history of arrhythmia.
An obituary shared on the DellaVecchia, Reilly, Smith and Boyd Funeral Home website described the late actor as "a jack of many trades including advertising account manager, telecommunications project manager, special education teacher, bartender, and reality TV star."
Brian, who had completed the Road Rules: Latin America in the seventh season of the MTV hit series, is survived by his fiancée, Sarah J. Bell, parents, Carol Lancaster and Dennis Lancaster, godparents, Janice O’Hara and Ed Lancaster, and his dog named Reagan.
