‘600-lb Life’ star James Bonner found dead in South Carolina

James "L.B." Bonner, who appeared on the TLC series My 600-lb Life, has been found dead, according to Radar Online.

TMZ reported the Lexington Police department responded to a welfare check at the reality star's SC home on Thursday evening. In his episode, he lost more than 300 pounds, dropping from 642 pounds to 316 pounds. Police have not yet ruled it to be a suicide, though TMZ reports that they are not looking for any suspects as of yet. After that, Bonner said the only thing he wanted to do was drink. The 39-year-old was confirmed dead at the scene.

TLC posted a statement on its website confirmed Bonner's death and said the network was "deeply saddened and was "honored to have shared his honest and courageous story". He even kept shedding the weight off-camera.

"I've realized a few things over the last few days and its time that, I face my demons head on", he said.

Another My 600-lb Life cast member has passed away.

'Again, thank y'all so much.

He added, "Please don't ever let people you care about not know how you feel...." Just wishing I could come home to you cooking dinner for me and us binge watching sons of anarchy together one more time.

Just a few days earlier he posted that he was "beyond blessed" and "thankful" after embarking on a "crazy journey to get healthy".

He ended by telling fans "there is a HUGE potential for all of us".

However, some of his posts (like the one the day of his death) revealed that Bonner may have been struggling, as well. In a July 9 post, he wrote, "Got a lot on my mind tonight, and got some things to sort out and decide on".

Another friend told Radar, "Haven't heard exactly what happened, but I keep seeing people say something about depression is real". "It's changed my relationship with myself, my relationship with my family, my relationship with my friends, and it's giving me an outlet to motivate and inspire so many other people".

In March, Bonner told WIS that his experience on the TLC reality show was "an wonderful journey" as he worked to turn his life from heavy drinking, the loss of his best friend, and losing his leg in an ATV accident.

Moments before his passing, James, 31, actually took to his official Facebook Page on August 2 to leave what now appears to have been a good-bye message.
