Tattoo artist Scott Marshall was found dead on Sunday in a hotel near his Chicago tattoo parlor.
Chicago police are investigating the mysterious death of a reality TV show star, who never made it home from his Windy City tattoo parlor Sunday.
Cops are trying to figure out what happened between the time “Ink Master” winner Scott Marshall, 41, called his wife from the shop on Saturday night and told her he wasn’t feeling well enough to get home and when he was discovered hours later dead in a hotel room.
TMZ reported that a preliminary autopsy shows the cause of death was related to unspecified heart issues.
Marshall took home the $ 100,000 grand prize in the fourth season of “Ink Master” — whose host Dave Navarro tweeted condolences on Tuesday, calling Marshall his “friend.”
