Joey Boots’ Cause of Death Revealed

Months after he was found dead at his apartment, the cause of death has been determined for Howard Stern's "Wack Packer" radio co-star Joey Boots.

The Medical Examiner's Office in New York told TMZ that Boots, 49, died from “acute heroin intoxication.”

The cause of his death was listed as “accidental.”

On December 23, his co-star High Pitch Erik went to Joey’s apartment to check on him after he didn’t show up to work. Erik found Joey "sitting in a chair, cold to the touch and with no pulse,” according to TMZ.

Before his death, Boots discussed his battles with cocaine and crack addiction openly on his radio show.
