Comedian Fuquan Johnson died this weekend from an apparent overdose. He was 42-years-old.

The Los Angeles-based comic was among three people who were found dead at a party in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles early Saturday morning.

The other two victims have not been officially identified, while a fourth person who appeared to have also overdosed, believed to be comedian and model Kate Quigley, was transported to a hospital in critical condition, according to TMZ.

Police were called to the party just after midnight and pronounced Johnson and the two others, who may have also been comedians, dead at the scene.

So far there’s no update on Quigley’s condition.

Investigators believe all four people ingested cocaine laced with fentanyl.

Autopsies are being performed on the three victims, which are currently at the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office. 

Johnson and Quigley are known to have been friends, and have been photographed together over the last few years.  

At this point, it’s unclear who supplied the drugs, and whether other people at the party also consumed the laced cocaine.   

A fourth victim, found unconscious at the party, is believed to be comedian and model Kate Quigley; she was transported to a hospital in critical condition, according to TMZ

While LAPD is investigating, law enforcement sources told TMZ that the department’s homicide unit have not been notified about this particular case.

Quigley had previously been romantically linked to Hootie & The Blowfish lead singer Darius Rucker.

A representative of Rucker’s confirmed to the publication that he was no longer dating Quigley. 

They were reportedly going out for a good portion of 2020, but are no longer in an intimate relationship.
