Tyler Sanders, a teen actor best known for his roles in “Just Add Magic: Mystery City” and guest appearances on “9-1-1: Lone Star” and “Fear the Walking Dead,” died in June of “fentanyl effects,” according to his autopsy.

According to the report obtained Thursday by NBC News from the Los Angeles County medical examiner-coroner, Sanders, 18, was found “unresponsive in bed of his locked apartment” on June 16.

According to the report, 911 was called and paramedics were dispatched to the apartment where Sanders was pronounced dead.

“The friend had been texting with him the night before, and he reported using fentanyl,” according to the autopsy. “Drug paraphernalia was discovered on the scene.”

According to the autopsy, toxicology tests revealed that Sanders had the powerful drug in his system.

“Fentanyl… is a synthetic opioid that is approximately 50-100 times more potent than morphine,” according to the autopsy.

According to the report, Sanders “had a history of drug use.”
“Tyler was a talented actor with a bright future,” Sanders’ agent, Pedro Tapia, said in a statement in June. He comes from a wonderful family, and we would appreciate it if you could respect their privacy at this time.”

Tapia could not be reached for comment on Thursday. Sanders’ relatives were also unable to be reached.

Sanders played Leo in Amazon’s “Just Add Magic” in 2019 and will reprise the role in the show’s 2020 spinoff series, “Just Add Magic: Mystery City.”
