New Year’s Eve took a tragic turn for the family of Dan Kay, best known for a stint on the TV show ‘Survivor,’ as he passed away suddenly. As Heavy reports, his death was completely unexpected, and that’s ramped up the speculation on exactly what led to it.
To make things even more curious, police in his hometown of Brookline, New Hampshire say that they have no record of his death, and the local coroner is drawing a blank as well.
“His death was not reported to us. I don’t think he died in NH,” according to Kim Fallon, Chief Forensic Investigator for the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner.
His devastated girlfriend, Jennifer DePietro, notes that she and the family are of course grieving, but she didn’t add any more details.
“We’re not releasing how he passed at this time,” she said.
Several former Survivor alums have shared remembrances of Kay.
“I don’t know how he died but I do know he spoke highly of his children and how much he loved them. He was an amazing guy and I got to hang out with him in Boston a few months ago. I have nothing but great things to say about him,” shared Cristina Coria.
