Shaun Carlson died on October 4, 2009. He was 35. Shaun had been diagnosed with Brugada syndrome, also known as Sudden Unexpected Death Syndrome (SUDS), a genetic disease that is characterized by abnormal electrocardiogram findings and an increased risk of sudden cardiac death. A pacemaker had been installed earlier in the year to help curb this condition.
