Erick Morillo’s Death Officially Ruled An Accidental Drug Overdose

A preliminary report from the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department says the death of Erick Morillo, the international house DJ found dead in his Miami Beach home last month, was an accident.

The report, which was obtained this morning by New Times, says Morillo died of “acute ketamine toxicity” and lists MDMA and cocaine use as a contributing cause of death. The final autopsy report is expected to be released within the next two weeks.

Miami Beach police officers were dispatched to Morillo’s home on La Gorce Drive around 10:45 a.m. on September 1. Someone in Morillo’s circle, whose name and relationship are redacted in police reports, went to Morillo’s home to check on him after not hearing from the DJ for several days.
