Calhoun’s mother, Theresa Bailey, tells local news outlet 4WWL that the cause of death is congestive heart failure and problems with his lungs. Funeral arrangement are pending in St. Charles Parish for the New Sarpy, La. native. Bailey says her son did not have life insurance, so a GoFundMe account has been created.
