Nearly five months after Joel Taylor mysteriously died aboard a cruise ship in Puerto Rico, can finally confirm his cause of death.

The Storm Chasers star, who was just 38 years old, succumbed to a “combination of ecstasy and tricyclic antidepressants,” Karixia Ortiz Serrano of the Institute of Forensic Sciences of Puerto Rico told Radar. “He overdosed.”

The recent update came from recent laboratory results and toxicology analysis, the spokesperson claimed.

The Blast was the first to report the shocking drug overdose.

As Radar previously reported, the ship was full of hard partying and dance parties, and even a performance by Olivia Newton-John.

After Taylor’s death, cops raided the ship twice, seemingly to search for illegal substances.

“After his body was taken off the ship, the entire ship was dealing with police and drug-sniffing dogs everywhere,” a passenger told Radar exclusively. “They were not playing around and many passengers were also removed from the boat.”
