Charles Rogers, a lieutenant commander in the Royal Navy of UK, died from over*dose on a her*oin substitute.
According to BBC News, Jordan's dad had spent 40 years living as a drug addict and had been in reclusion before passing away in 2018.

Timeless Life explains that Jordan also inherited Rogers Family Trust Fund which provides him with a weekly allowance of $404 to $1,348 (N167,086 to N557,505) like somewhat a lifetime salary.
The young man told Cornwall Live:
“I’ve been at the point of worrying about the next bill and have had a tough start in life but now I’m here I want to help people. I’m not going to forget where I’ve come from."
The estate makes money from investments in stocks and shares as well as renting some of the parcels of land to local farmers.
Dog becomes billionaire after inheriting fortune from its late owner
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a dog had become a billionaire after inheriting N205.4 billion from its deceased owner.
It should be noted that Gunther VI is the offspring of a lovely pet, Gunther III, that inherited a large fortune from its owner, German countess Karlotta Liebenstein, who died in 1992.
The great-grandfather of Gunther VI inherited the sum about 30 years ago when its committed owner willed it, Business Journals reported.
For decades, a group of handlers has been guarding the fortune to ensure that only the Gunther bloodline enjoys the wealth in a life of great comfort. Some of the wealth was used to buy a home that is now up for sale for $31.75 million (N13,044,170,000).
