TMZ is reporting it as a suicide....
"Multiple sources close to Balelo tell us he was found dead in his car ... which was parked and running in the garage at his auction house in Simi Valley, CA.
According to our sources, Balelo had been arrested for a drug-related offense on Saturday. We're told when Balelo got out of jail he was distraught, and asked his fiancée to come over because he was afraid he might hurt himself."
Sad to see things like this; my heart goes out to his loved ones. It's really a struggle for those left behind to deal with.
