Fans of the Discovery Channel were heartbroken on Wednesday morning by the news Storm Chasers star Joel Taylor had passed away. But also baffled as he was so young.

Now it appears the 38-year-old’s death at sea — he was aboard the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line Harmony of the Seas — may have been drug-related.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ:

“It appears the death could be an overdose and Joel Taylor was consuming controlled substances.”

A fellow passenger also told the outlet Joel was on GHB and lost consciousness while dancing — and had to be removed from the floor by two people.

Joel was discovered in his cabin while the ship was en route to San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Such a tragedy.
