Phoenix police stated Tuesday that large amounts of cocaine in various forms was found at Rod Beck's home at the time of his death, according to the Arizona Republic.
Beck's ex-wife, Stacey, said she was certain that her former husband died of a cocaine overdose.
When she learned that her father had died, the Becks' younger daughter, Kelsey, 12, told her mother, "Daddy shouldn't die without helping someone else."
"That's the only reason I'm talking about this," Stacey said. "The point of putting it out there is that someone else who has the disease can get some help, can get some comfort, can get some understanding and empathy. That would be the reason to tell it, not just to air dirty laundry."
"And no child should have to be ashamed because her daddy was addicted."
