Comic Fuquan Johnson concerned in alleged triple cocaine overdose in Los Angeles – at the moment fourth sufferer in hospital
# Roommate, there is extremely sad news in Los Angeles about the death of several comedians from suspected drug overdoses. Comedian Fuquan Johnson was reportedly among the deaths from a triple cocaine overdose that also involved another local comic and a fourth victim currently in hospital.
@TMZ_TV reports that on September 3, Los Angeles police arrived shortly after midnight at the crime scene of a house in the Venice neighborhood. Inside, they discovered three dead, all of whom died from a suspected drug overdose, and a fourth victim who was immediately rushed to the hospital. Among those who died are two local comedians, Fuquan Johnson and Enrico Colangeli, the third victim Natalie Williamson and Kate Quigley (also a cartoonist), who is in serious condition at a local hospital.
The local authorities believe that the cause of death for the three victims appears to be due to an overdose of cocaine containing fentanyl. The final cause of death should be available in the next few days, as the bodies of the deceased were transferred to the LA Coroner’s Office for an official autopsy.
Fuquan Johnson, Enrico Colangeli and Kate Quigley were popular figures on the Los Angeles comedy scene and were obviously close friends as photos of Fuquan and Kate appeared on their social media. Natalie Williamson is not a comedian, however.
Kate is said to be still alive, but her condition is still considered incredibly serious and she is still closely monitored. This story evolves.
