MTV 'Road Rules' star Danny Dias dead at 34


Former MTV reality TV star Danny Dias has died at the age of 34, TMZ reported on Wednesday.

Dias appeared on the thirteenth season of "Road Rules" back in 2004 and a friend told TMZ that drugs may have contributed to his death over the weekend. He also later appeared on "The Challenge" in 2005.

A friend of Dias' who was with him on Saturday night attempted to call his friend for two days with no answer before stopping by, concerned, on Monday and finding his body in his room.

Not much else is known about Dias' passing at this time.

The reality star was from Linden, New Jersey and majored in music education from 2001 to 2003 at the Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, VH1 reports.

Dias is the third former MTV reality star to pass away this year. Former "Rob & Big" star Christopher "Big" Boykin passed away last month, and former "Newport Beach" star Clay Adler died earlier this year.

UPDATE: TMZ reported later on Wednesday that Dias was "found with two vertical lacerations on his forearm," which has led authorities to be treating the case as a potential suicide.
