Ellingson’s father told NBC News after his son’s death that the actor had recently relapsed and had returned to drug addiction. Ultimately, he was defeated in the fight against addiction. Fentanyl is considered one of the most dangerous drugs in the world and deaths from it are steadily increasing.
The drug owes its name to the slumped posture and uncontrolled movements that result from taking it. Just two milligrams of fentanyl is enough to be deadly as a mixture. The well-known rapper Mac Miller also died of a fentanyl overdose.
