Storage Wars Cast Member Mark Balelo Dies

Facebook

Mark Balelo aka “Rico Suave” one of the stars of A&E’s Storage Wars was found dead in California yesterday of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Apparently Balelo had been arrested for a drug-related offense on Saturday and was really upset. His fiance spent some time with him Sunday evening and left.  Balelo’s body was found by an employee Monday morning.

Balelo had appeared on a number of Storage Wars episodes over the past few seasons. He made his first appearance during the show’s second season, appearing in four episodes that year. He also appeared once during the third season. He was known for bringing large sums of money to auctions, sometimes as much as $50,000 at a time.

An autopsy is scheduled for today.
