A rep from the medical examiner’s office confirmed that they were waiting for toxicology test results from the completed autopsy in order to determine the actual cause of death. 

“Medical staff were on-scene with the patient when he became unresponsive,” the police report stated. “During this Officer’s involvement with the incident, there were no indications of any criminal activity. This death investigation is concluded by this department.”

Caleb and Tammy met amid their respective weight loss journeys and tied the knot at the rehab center in November 2022, in a ceremony featured on the TLC reality series.
