Erick Morillo’s death ruled an accidental drug overdose
Erick Morillo died of an accidental drug overdose, according to a toxicology report from the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department. Morillo’s death was specifically attributed to “acute ketamine toxicity,” but cocaine and MDMA were also identified as contributing causes of death.
Morillo was found dead in his Miami apartment on September 1. The news of his death came several weeks after the late producer, aged 49, was arrested and charged with sexual battery in relation to an alleged rape that reportedly took place at his Miami Beach home in December 2019. Although Morillo denied the allegations throughout the months-long police investigation, he turned himself over to police when the results of a rape kit tested positive for his DNA, precipitating the charges.
