Cocaine is now reportedly suspected as the cause of death for a freelance producer on "The Amazing Race" who was found dead in his hotel room, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As previously reported, poisoning was initially reported as the cause after Jeff Rice was found dead in a Uganda hotel room. Rice, 39, is now believed to have suffered a drug overdose, the story notes.

His assistant, Katheryne Fuller, was found unconscious in the room and is recovering, the piece adds.

"[We] do not believe this was any type of food poisoning. Again, we are still investigating and will know much more when we can talk to Ms. Fuller," said Uganda Police Force spokesman Asuman Mugenyi, according to the piece.

Rice previously worked on shows including "Whale Wars" and "Destination Truth."
