Last week, Bill Cosby won a legal case against a woman who sued him for defaming her, when he denied her allegations of sexual assault. A Pittsburgh federal judge dismissed the case “with prejudice” meaning it cannot be amended or refiled. Cosby has repeatedly denied all accusations against him made by more than 50 women.
On Friday, the comedian checked himself in to a Nevada brothel where the workers there say he entered with several thousands of dollars in cash and cocaine. On Sunday, after not hearing from Cosby for several hours, the workers entered his room finding him unresponsive. EMTs responded and rushed Cosby on a flight for life helicopter to UMC hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The coroner’s office say it will take several weeks for toxicology reports on Cosby to be released to the public. However, they did confirm cocaine residue in his nasal cavity and found several grams in his personal belongings at the brothel ranch. This is reminiscent to Lamar Odom’s October 2015 tragedy when he was found to have overdosed on cocaine and other drugs before he was discovered by Nevada brothel workers. Cosby will be laid to rest in his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 30, 2016.
