Mark Balelo aka “Rico Suave” as he was sometimes called on Storage Wars was found dead in his car that was parked and running in the garage in his auction house. According to TMZ, he had been arrested for a drug offense on Saturday and wasn’t doing too hot when he got out of jail. His fiancé went to comfort him, he took a nap and woke up feeling better–so she left. Then, on Monday morning, one of his employees found him dead in his car. UGH. So sad! Poor guy.
If you remember, he was the dude that helped return a Superman comic book that was worth $1 million back to Nicholas Cage. He was one flashy dude!
R.I.P. Rico Suave.
