Chase Tatum, a 34-year-old former wrestler, was found dead at his Atlanta home on Sunday. He suffered an apparent and accidental overdose of drugs, his father said.

Tautum was a wrestler for the now-disappeared World Championship Wrestling Organization (WCW). He had recently appeared in the comedy movie 'Who's Your Caddy?', with rapper Big Boi, of Outkast fame.

Roy Tatum, Chase's father, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that his son was found in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. Apparently, he was about to enter rehabilitation.

Chase Tatum had been recovering from back surgery to repair a degenerative disc. His father said the former wrestler had been fighting a dependence to painkillers for years but had been planning to enter a rehabilitation center.
