ACTOR Daniel Mickelson’s cause of death has been ruled as “cocaine and fentanyl toxicity” overdose three months after his sudden passing.
The rising actor passed away on July 4th at age 23.
The Sun can exclusively reveal Daniel’s cause of death is fentanyl and cocaine toxicity, and has been ruled an “accident,” according to the Los Angeles County Coroner.
Daniel is best known for his role in TV series Mani in 2019 and indie horror film The Killer Clown Meets the Candy Man.
His passing was announced by his younger sister, Meredith Mickelson.
She captioned a photo of them as children: “My heart is shattered & to write this feels so wrong and i don’t even know what to say. Yesterday i lost my brother, best friend & the other half of my heart.
“There wasn’t a person i loved more on this earth. theres no words that can do him justice that i could write. to know him was to love him.
“He was the happiest brightest smiley most sunshine human to exist and I’m so happy God chose me to be his sister for his whole amazing life.”
Daniel has a number of celebrity friends, including Paris Hilton, Kaia Gerber, and Patrick Schwarzenegger, who all paid tribute to their late pal.
Model Kaia posted a screenshot of a FaceTime call with Daniel, as she captioned the photo: "I remember that time we sat on the couch and spent the whole day coming up with our own secret language that we continued to speak every time we saw each other.
"I wish we could go back there. I wish we were still talking in sentences that probably annoyed everyone else but made us crack up every time.
"I wish I was still sitting on my bathroom floor because that was the only place I had wifi and I never wanted to miss a call from you.
"Thank you for being the reason for so much laughter and happiness in the world. It won't be the same without you here. I love you Daniel.”
Patrick Schwarzenegger commented his condolences under the post, writing: "Praying for you.”
Paris Hilton added: "So sad to hear this. RIP.”
