LOVE After Lockup star Tracie Wagaman died of an “accidental meth overdose” just one week after welcoming a baby.
The Las Vegas Coroner’s Office exclusively confirmed to The Sun that Tracie’s official cause of death is methamphetamine toxicity.
The death has been ruled accidental.
The coroner’s date of death is July 1 and the time is 10:54pm.
Tracie, 41, passed away just one week after giving birth to a baby girl.
Her brother Mark Wagaman previously told The Sun that the family tried to help her stay sober as she battled drug addiction over the years.
Mark said: “She’s had a habit for quite a while, half her life. It’s been 20 years on and off. She had a history of jail and prison. When you get out you go back to it. We’ve tried to help her.”
Mark revealed the two had been estranged at the time of her death, as they hadn’t spoken to each other in over a year.
He continued: "She was my sister, I still loved her.”
Mark learned of his sister’s death when police contacted him.
He said of the police call: “They told me she passed away the night before in Las Vegas. I was the first person contacted. I let my mom know. She’s handling it as a mom should. We have so many questions we need answered.”
Despite her struggle with drug abuse, Mark urged fans “not to speculate” how his sister, who was open about her battle with drugs, passed away until the coroner and police were able to confirm.
Mark confirmed the cause of death to YouTube channel Sharrell’s World.
Mark started a GoFundMe page with a goal of $5,000 to help pay for funeral arrangements.
The GoFundMe read: “Our family is deeply saddened with our loss. We know she had many friends and followers who were pulling for her.
“She had a heart of gold. I had some medical issues a few years back and wasn't able to work. She gave me $500 so I could catch up on bills. If you had the chance to meet her I guarantee she would consider you a friend. She was such a people person.
“We would like to use the money to pay for her funeral. If additional money is raised we will put a portion of it in a savings account for her son and if at all possible her daughter. We want to donate the remainder of the money to a domestic violence organization that will be named later.”
The Love After Lockup star, who is mom to a 4-year-old son named Issac, announced her pregnancy back in May, but had decided to delay revealing the news, according to Starcasm.
Tracie was said to have been waiting for the baby's father, Luke Loera, to be released from prison.
