Police are investigating this incident as a death investigation and a drug overdose.

Horry County, SC Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler told 10 News there is no foul play in the two deaths.

The cause of death for both men will not be determined for some time due to the impact of COVID-19, according to Fowler.

Arnold is a member of Outlaw Ridge, a Country / Southern Rock band and would also be performing solo.

The band had the next schedule to play Saturday night at The Glass House in Lynchburg.
