The death of Dirk Shafer, the model, actor and fitness trainer who became a heartthrob to most straight women and gay men when he was named Playgirl‘s “Man of the Year in 1992, was caused by “methamphetamine and cocaine toxicity,” according to results of an autopsy performed on the 52 year old.
The L.A. County Coroner’s office released its finding April 29 and noted that he suffered from hypertensive cardiovascular disease. Shafer was found dead in his car parked on a West Hollywood street March 5.
Shafer also appeared on Will & Grace in 2001 as a character named Blaze. The same year he directed Circuit, which looked at the gay party scene and played at numerous film festivals. In 2012, Shafer again posed nude for Playgirl to commemorate the 2oth anniversary of his first layout.
He was buried last month at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in a private ceremony attended by his family from Oklahoma.
