Robert Bruce, a cast member from the AMC reality TV series Comic Book Men, was found dead on Friday inside a New Jersey storage facility.

Bruce, age 62, was believed by his family to have been living in a basement unit at the storage facility, which he also used as an office. Foul play is not suspected by police, NJ.com reported, although the investigation continues.

Police went looking for him after his family reported they had not heard from him in several days.

Comic Book Men aired on the AMC Network from 2012-18. The show was set at Kevin Smith’s comic book shop, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, in Red Bank, NJ. Bruce appeared in 34 episodes, and had producing and consulting credits on 82 episodes. But even before the show raised his public profile, Bruce was a noted collectibles expert for decades.

Bruce’s last Instagram post was from another Jersey flea market on Dec. 22.
