The cause of death for radio personality and UFO enthusiast Art Bell has been determined — and no, Bell didn’t meet his demise from an alien probing gone awry. Bell, who died April 13, at his home in Pahrump, Nevada, died of multiple drug intoxication “from his own lawfully prescribed prescriptions,” the Nye County Sheriff’s Office in Nevada said Wednesday. Citing an autopsy conducted by the Clark County Medical Examiner, the sheriff’s office said that the death was determined to be caused by an accidental overdose.
Bell died April 13 in a bedroom of his Pahrump home at age 72. The coroner’s office determined he had four prescription medications in his system: the opioids oxycodone and hydrocodone, diazepam (often marketed as Valium) and the muscle relaxant carisoprodol. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and hypertension also contributed to his death, the coroner’s office said.

From what little I recall from my pharmacology days, that's not a good combo, especially at his age.
