Two other people who have not yet been named, also died from the tainted drugs.  Comedian Kate Quigley, who was at the party in the Venice house, is hospitalized in critical condition. A fellow comedian shared her message to him on social media. 

According to The New York Post, comedian Brian Redban shared a screenshot on Instagram of a Sept. 5 text exchange where Quigley wrote, “I’m alive. I’m not great. But I’m ok.”

Medical examiners are still determining what killed the three victims. Sources tell TMZ that all four attendees ingested the laced cocaine. Fentanyl,which is a controlled substance, is a synthetic opioid 100 times stronger than morphine. The LAPD is investigating who supplied the doses of painkillers. 

Our condolences go out to Fuquan Johnson’s friends, family and supporters.
