    The mechanic passed away after an apparent heroin overdose, TMZ reported, and had been dead for several days when he was found slumped in a chair near a syringe and spoon at his home on September 9.

    The reality TV star, who went by the nickname ‘Kentucky’ because that is where he grew up, starred on the Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws on and off from 2013 until 2018.

    Sad end: Christopher Scott Ellis has died at the age of 39 it Oklahoma City, it was revealed on Wednesday by TMZ

    A roommate, who had not seen Christopher in several days, had tried to get into the residence to check on him with no luck as the door was locked.

    He then contacted two friends to help him unlock the door, which they did, and upon entrance to the home, they found the star dead.

    According to the site, Ellis ‘was found slumped forward with his head laying on a table with a metal spoon, a liquor bottle, and a syringe nearby.’

    The syringe contained ‘a small amount of a dark liquid’ the officer noted as consistent with heroin, added the site.

    Bad turn: The mechanic passed away after an apparent heroin overdose, the site reported, and had been dead for several days when he was found at his home on September 9

    The site also looked at the police report that the roommate ‘knew Chris had a drinking problem but was unaware of any drug issues.’

    But the other friends maintained that they were aware Chris had a drug problem.

    It was added that police believed there were no signs of foul play.

    The initial autopsy was ‘inconclusive,’ according to the site, and a toxicology report is still pending.

    On the show, he was part of the team at the Midwest Street Cars Automotive in Oklahoma City.

    ‘Chris was a dearly-loved brother, son, and friend who will be deeply missed by all who knew him,’ his family said in a statement.

    He is survived by his mother Loleta Sullins; his father Bruce Ellis has already passed away.

    Chris has three brothers and three sisters – brothers Robbie Ellis, Quentin Ellis, and Logan Justice; along with his sisters, Amanda Scothorn, Alana Messer, and Amanda Whobrey.

    Painful goodbye: A roommate who had not seen Christopher in several days had tried to get into the residence with no luck as the door was locked. He then contacted two friends to help him unlock the door, which they did, and upon entrance to the home, they found the star dead

He became known for his dedication to his job and his quick sense of humor at Midwest Street Cars Automotive in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
