Country music artist Luke Bell’s cause of death has been confirmed after he passed away at age 32 on August 26, more than a week after he’d gone missing in Tucson, Arizona.

Bell died from an accidental fentanyl overdose, ABC 9 KGUN Tucson reported.

The local news outlet claimed the Pima County Medical Examiner’s office had recently released the autopsy report, adding that a passerby had found the singer unresponsive in a shaded area of a parking lot.

The outlet stated drug paraphernalia had been found at the scene.

Bell was reported missing on Aug. 20, with Saving Country Music reporting that he’d been struggling with bipolar disorder.

“Long periods would go by where nobody heard from Luke Bell. He would end up in hospitals, or at times, incarcerated,” the blog noted, reporting that his “mental state took a turn for the worse” in recent months.

Singer Joshua Hedley and actress Jessica Chastain were among those to pay tribute on Twitter.
