WE CAME AS ROMANS Singer KYLE PAVONE Was Found Unconscious In Bathroom Near Used Syringe

According to TMZ, Kyle Pavone, vocalist for the Michigan metalcore act WE CAME AS ROMANS, was found lying on the floor unconscious in his bathroom just feet away from a used syringe before dying of an accidental overdose.

Kyle's girlfriend told cops he had gone into the bathroom at his home for a long time, and when she went to check on him, she found him unconscious. The police report, which TMZ obtained, says the syringe was found on the counter of the bathroom sink. Police say the girlfriend also revealed Kyle had struggled in the past with heroin use.

TMZ also obtained audio of the girlfriend's 911 call in which she describes finding him unresponsive. She then gets instructions on performing CPR.

According to the police report, EMTs gave Kyle a shot of Narcan after finding a pulse. He was rushed to the hospital where he went into cardiac arrest, and was eventually pronounced dead.

A toxicology report is still pending.

TMZ originally reported that Kyle was transported to a Michigan hospital on August 19 and pronounced dead six days later, on August 25.

WE CAME AS ROMANS' fifth album, "Cold Like War", was released last October through SharpTone Records.

A week before his death, Pavone tweeted, "Will i be remembered or will i be lost in loving eyes," a lyric from the song "Promise Me" from "Cold Like War".

Pavone joined WE CAME AS ROMANS in 2008 as vocalist and keyboardist and appeared on all five of the band's albums. Their 2013 LP, "Tracing Back Roots", peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart.

WE CAME AS ROMANS was scheduled to embark on a U.S. tour in September as the support act for BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE.
