According to Texas’ Travis County Medical Examiner Office, the 31-year-old had cocaine, heroin, sedative clonazepam — otherwise known as Klonopin — and anticonvulsant gabapentin in his system, leading to multiple drug toxicity and accidental death.
In the shocking medical examiner report, doctors said Nance had “demonstrated punctate needle puncture-like marks” on his arms, and a history of “opiate abuse, hypogonadism and anxiety.”
An acquaintance found the musician on the bathroom floor of his Texas group home at 1:30 am, the deputy medical examiner claimed. He was declared dead at 2:54 after resuscitation attempts.
Former Bachelorette costar Arie Luyendyk Jr. previously said Nance was living in a sober home at the time of his passing, and was struggling with addiction problems.
Sadly, it appears he spiraled into relapse.
In a deleted scene from the ABC show in 2012, Nance claimed he had two years sober from pills.
“I was addicted to prescription drugs,” he said. “It’s a vicious cycle…I’m almost two years sober now.”
