Former “CSI: Miami” star Evan Ellingson’s cause of death earlier this month was revealed to be an accidental fentanyl overdose, the San Bernardino County coroner’s office confirmed to Fox News Digital on Tuesday.
His manner of death was ruled an accident, according to the coroner’s death register.
Ellingson, 35, was found dead in his bedroom in Fontana, California, on Nov. 5.
His father previously told Fox News Digital that he had struggled with drug addiction for years, “but was doing really well recently so we are all in shock and devastated right now,” Michael Ellingson said at the time.

The California-born actor also appeared in other high-profile projects throughout his career as a child actor.
