CA: Actor Daniel Mickelson died of fentanyl-cocaine overdose in accidental death: L.A. coroner

The mystery of actor Daniel Mickelson’s death last summer has been solved.

The 23-year-old known for turns in “The Killer Clown Meets the Candy Man” and the series “Mani” died of an overdose, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office confirmed on Wednesday.

His official cause of death was “fentanyl and cocaine toxicity,” and his July 4 death is considered accidental, ET Online reported.

Mickelson’s sister, model Meredith Mickelson, first shared news of his death on Instagram July 5 with the words, “my heart is shattered.”

Up-and-comer Mickelson was the latest high-profile person to die in an accidental overdose involving the synthetic opioid fentanyl, cheaper and more potent than heroin. Most recently there was actor Michael K. Williams, best known for his role as Omar on “The Wire,” and who was found dead earlier this month in what was ruled an accidental overdose of fentanyl, heroin and cocaine.

Besides his acting roles, Mickelson had recently founded the clothing brand Kids Back Home in January, according to Deadline.
