TMZ spoke to Brooke who revealed that McCarver was found unconscious last night around midnight by a friend shortly after a phone conversation between herself and McCarver. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. Local law enforcement believes there are no signs of foul play, and Brooke claims McCarver showed no signs of intending to harm himself, as it appears the cause of death could be from McCarver choking on his food.
The last words he told Brooke on the phone were “I love you. Goodbye.” McCarver had a bit of a health scare last March during the 2017 Arnold Classic Australia where he collapsed onstage. As of late, however, he has seemed to be doing much better.
Dana also took to Instagram to honor McCarver:
