Cause of Death of ‘Deadliest Catch’ Star Nick McGlashan Revealed

A lethal combination of methamphetamine, cocaine, and fentanyl led to DEADLIEST CATCH actor Nick McGlashan’s death, according to an autopsy report acquired exclusively by The Sun.

Nick, 33, a seventh-generation fisherman who struggled with drug addiction, passed away at a Nashville Holiday Inn on December 28. He had flown in from his hometown of Reddick, Florida.

Investigator Krista Hammonds from the Nashville Center for Forensic Medicine wrote a report that included the details, “this 33-year-old male was found comatose in the toilet of his hotel room,” and “the decedent had a known history of illegal drug consumption.”

The body of the celebrity, who was reportedly a father of two, was discovered wearing “a gray shirt and gray underwear.”

The report said that the deadly consequences of methamphetamine, cocaine, and fentanyl caused Nick’s death. Nick’s legal first name was Bruce, and his race is described as “American Indian.”

According to the report, medical personnel attempted but failed to revive him using a defibrillator.

The Sun broke the tragic news of Nick’s death in December and comments from his pals.

During his seven years as a deck boss on The Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch, which began in 2013, he participated in 78 episodes.

He and his long-term partner, Claire Hammond, are rumored to be parents to two children.

He mentioned his “trauma” in his final Tweet on December 10: “Trauma is causing me to fall asleep randomly. It also randomly triggers my alarm. Pay close attention to your surroundings.

His drug use led to his being suspended for a portion of season 13 of Deadliest Catch.

On Nick’s death, his co-star and friend Landon Cheney also shared a heartfelt homage to his “brother.”

To paraphrase what Landon penned, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be grieving, crying, or pain anymore, for these things belong to the past.

The Lord said, ‘Behold, I am making all things new.’ Brother, you are no longer in pain; I will never forget you.

Nick admitted that during the height of his addiction, he drank half a gallon of vodka daily and injected himself with one gram of meth and two grams of heroin.

After three overdoses in September 2016, he checked himself into rehab.

He wrote about his struggle with substance abuse for Chosen Magazine.

He explained, “I went from being a badass on the Bering Sea to a full-blown junkie very quickly in my life.” My secret drive for life was kept from me.

My will to live was snatched away from me. My addiction and I were in a constant battle, and my obsession was winning.

He went on to say that his “thought, body, and spirit were so ill that [he] welcomed [his] own death.”

His words: “It would be an understatement to say I felt disoriented. I felt empty and broken inside. I had given up on ever being happy. My only goal was to keep piling on the cash.

“A ruthless, crafty, and mystifying illness has robbed me of every last ounce of joy I ever knew.”

The reality star claimed that he stayed sober by adhering to the 12 steps, attending meetings, and enlisting the help of a sponsor.

He had described his experience in recovery as both the “scariest” and the “greatest” of his life.

Nick’s former co-star on Deadliest Catch, Jake Harris, has also opened up about his struggles with substance abuse.

In an interview with Dr. Drew from 2011, Jake revealed his opiate misuse during his time at sea.

Nick began his maritime career at the tender age of thirteen by crabbing, and he soon worked his way up the fishing ranks.

Two of his aunts were professional crabbers; one died when their boat sank, and his great-uncle was a crew member on the first boat to appear in US crabbing records.

Mahlon Reyes, a deckhand on Deadliest Catch, passed away in August of last year at the age of 38 from a heart attack, and Nick’s passing happened shortly after.
