SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say the death of a businessman
featured on A&E's "Storage Wars" has been declared a suicide.
The Ventura County medical examiner's office determined Mark Balelo died
after inhaling carbon monoxide and car exhaust fumes. His body was found Monday
morning in a business warehouse in Simi Valley, Calif.
"Storage Wars" followed Balelo as one of a group of buyers who bid on
abandoned storage units searching for lucrative items to sell.
