Renowned body builder, Dallas McCarver, has died at the age of 26, the Boca Raton Police Department confirms to PEOPLE.
Officers responded to a 911 call at the bodybuilder’s residence on Broken Sound Parkway in Boca Roton, Florida, just after midnight on August 21. No foul play is suspected at this time and police are now awaiting the medical examiner’s report, Public Information Manager of the Boca Raton Police Department, Mark Economou, tells PEOPLE.
WWE superstar Dana Brooke, McCarver’s girlfriend, told McCarver that she loved him over the phone shortly before a friend found the 300-pounder unconscious in his home, she told TMZ. It appears he may have choked on food, she added.
McCarver, known as “Big Country,” had been a star within the body building community since he was 21, and had placed 8th in the 2016 Mr. Olympia competition in Las Vegas last September.
