According to the incident report, Johnson’s wife immediately called 911 and her husband still had a pulse when local authorities arrived. He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

The couple’s children were home at the time of the incident, according to police. The police said that Johnson was not known to have had any mental illnesses. Johnson was seen discussing Carole Baskin on the fourth episode of the hit Netflix series.

His death occurred just days after Tiger King personality Erik Cowie was found dead as a result of excessive alcohol use.

Officials with the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner told TMZ that the reality star, who was found dead on September 3 in a friend’s Brooklyn apartment, died as the result of acute and chronic alcohol use, in a natural manner.

Cowie had been found face down by authorities, TMZ reported, and a vodka bottle was found nearby.

Tiger King debuted in March 2020, just as the world was beginning to lockdown in response to the coronavirus pandemic. It drew some 64million household viewers in its first month and was nominated for six prime-time Emmy awards, according to the company.

Much of the series has focused on a dispute between Baskin and Joseph Maldonado-Passage aka Joe Exotic over the treatment of tigers, lions and other big cats at an Oklahoma zoo he formerly operated.

Maldonado-Passage is imprisoned after he was convicted of attempting to hire someone to kill Baskin, a tale told in the initial series.
