According to Fox News:

Jim Raman, an orthodontist who competed on the reality show “The Amazing Race” in 2014 with his wife, died Monday. He was 42.

Raman, of Irmo, S.C., died at his home, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department told Deadline. Authorities went to the residence to respond to a call and pronounced Raman dead at the scene, said Capt. Adam Myrick, the department's spokesperson.

It was not immediately clear how Raman died but Myrick told USA Today that police were not “seeking any suspects or persons of interest as our work on this case continues.”

“Nothing suspicious or criminal is involved with the case you are referencing and out of compassion and respect for family, my office will not comment on it,” Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher told WIS-TV.

Raman and his wife own a dental practice together and finished second in the reality show contest.
