The Los Angeles County coroner’s office on Sunday confirmed the death of the 43-year-old comedian but did not release the official cause, KABC reported.

The deceased also included Natalie Williamson, 33, of Los Angeles, and Enrico Colangeli, 48, of Medford, Mass, KCAL reported, citing the coroner’s office.

Officer Mike Lopez, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department, told the Los Angeles Times that when officers arrived at the scene in the 200 block of Carroll Canal they found three people dead and one woman who was taken to the hospital.

According to KCAL, comedian and model Kate Quigley, who has hosted Playboy TV’s “Undercover,” was in critical condition Sunday following the incident.

Lopez also noted that there “was no indication of foul play,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

Johnson, a stand-up comedian, was also a writer for TV’s “Comedy Parlour Live.”

TMZ, the first outlet to report the deaths, reported that Quigley lived next to the residence from which the 911 call originated. All of the victims appeared to have ingested cocaine laced with fentanyl, a powerful painkiller, the outlet reported.
