Ink Master’s Scott Marshall Died of an Accidental Heroin Overdose

In October when the story broke of Scott Marshall’s passing, the autopsy findings showed his death was heart-related. After complaining to his wife of not feeling well enough to drive home from his Roselle Tattoo Company tattoo shop in Roselle, Illinois, the Ink Master winner decided to stay at a nearby hotel. According to police, he died in his sleep.  At the time, the cause of death was still under investigation, but now the findings are definite – Scott Marshall died of an accidental heroin overdose, as well as a combination of prescription drugs. To be more specific, a combination of Xanax and Valium were found in his system, along with an apparent use of intravenous drugs (the coroner noted there were marks on Marshall’s body). His drug use was never put in the spotlight.

His Time on Spike TV’s Ink Master

In February 2014, Marshall joined the show’s Season 4 outing, and had been on top numerous times throughout the season, ultimately taking home the grand prize of $100,000 while beating out fellow finalists Walter “Sausage” Frank and Matti Hixson. As a part of the win, he was also featured on the cover of Inked magazine. Original Media, the show’s production company said in a statement, “We’re tremendously saddened by the passing of Scott Marshall, a vibrant, creative spirit and talent who will be missed by the entire ‘Ink Master’ family.” Marshall was survived by his wife Johanna and his three young children. He was 41. The most effective method of defeating drug addiction is a course of drug therapy at a rehab center. Rehab centers are staffed by experienced medical professionals and are equipped to deal with many types of drug addiction. If you or someone you care about is suffering from a drug addiction or abuse problem, and you need more information about addiction treatment and recovery maintenance, get help by calling drug treatment centers.
