According to TMZ, “Storage Wars” star Mark Balelo took his own life today via carbon monoxide poisoning. 

Sources close to Balelo have revealed to TMZ he was found dead in his car…which was parked and running in the garage of his auction house in Simi Valley, CA.

Balelo had been arrested for a drug-related offense on Saturday…and was extremely distraught when released from jail. Afraid that he may do something to hurt himself, Balelo asked his fiancée to come stay with him.

The two met at his office on Sunday …they talked for a few hours and he took a four hour nap. We’re told that when Balelo woke up  he seemed a lot better.

Balelo was found dead by one of his employees the following morning.

Law enforcement sources have told TMZ that an autopsy will be conducted tomorrow.
