(LibertySons.org) – Dex Carvey, the 32-year-old son of comedian Dana Carvey, died in November, but initial reports only stated that the young man had been found unresponsive and was too far gone for paramedics to revive. Now, two months after his passing, the cause of his death has been released. The young comedian succumbed to a deadly cocktail of drugs.
Dex Carvey seemed to be following in his father’s footsteps, building his resume and, most recently, touring a stand-up routine. IMDb lists four film and television credits under his belt. He was in four episodes of the miniseries “The Funster,” which aired in 2013, and the young comedian edited and appeared in another short series, “Beyond the Comics,” the following year. He played in the direct-to-video movie “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser” in 2015 before performing his final role in the short 2016 film “Carpool Pandering.”
TMZ, which obtained a copy of the LA County Coroner’s report, stated that Carvey’s death was believed to be accidental and deemed the result of fentanyl mixed with cocaine and ketamine. His girlfriend reportedly called 911 after he became unresponsive on the bathroom floor of a residence in Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate the actor but ultimately had no choice but to pronounce him dead at the scene.
Dex and Dana Carvey were close, and the grieving father has been working to fill his heart with laughter by returning to “Fly on the Wall,” the podcast he hosts with good friend David Spade. Carvey and his wife, Paula, shared about their son shortly after his death, saying that their thoughts and prayers were with all people who continued to struggle with addiction or had loved ones fighting the battle.
The CDC states that 150 people die each day from overdoses connected to fentanyl and similar opioids. Even tiny doses can be lethal, and many people who ingest the drug do so accidentally by taking other drugs that have been laced with the potent compound.
