THIS is the plush $1.8million LA home where comic Fuquan Johnson and two others allegedly died from fentanyl-laced cocaine, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
The Los Angeles-based comic, 42, had been at a party on Venice Canals on Friday night where he was pronounced dead shortly after midnight, TMZ reported.
Fellow comic Enrico “Rico” Colangeli, 48, and friend Natalie Williamson, 33, were also found dead after emergency services rushed to the scene, while comedian and model Kate Quigley is still recovering in hospital.
Police were directed to a home in the 200 block of Carroll Canal where a number of people are listed, although neighbors say the deadly party went down next door, where Quigley has lived for around a year.
One said: “I saw some people arrive in the afternoon but all the doors were closed and it wasn’t noisy, I found out when I woke up what had happened.
“I didn’t know the people involved but have seen Kate around for the past year, it’s such a sad, sad situation.
“I’ve heard since being taken to hospital she is doing well and will make a full recovery. I hope so.”
Quigley’s property, seen in photographs obtained by The Sun, last sold for $1,050,000 in 2012, but is now worth more than $1.8million, according to online records.
The two bed two bath home offers stunning views of the canal, with large open windows, a modern through kitchen and lounge and a private deck and outside seating area.
Quigley is an Amerian comedian, actress, and model.
She has been featured on various shows and currently hosts the #DateFails podcast.
Quigley, who split with Darius Rucker in 2021 after a year of dating, was rumored to be seeing Johnson but in his death, that rumor was debunked.
She was admitted to hospital in critical condition but has since told pals she is “OK”.
The investigation remains ongoing and the LAPD homicide department has been notified about the case.
It is still unclear who purchased or supplied the drugs.
However police believe that all four in the Venice house consumed the fentanyl-laced cocaine.
Fuquan Johnson said he was “so high” in a chilling tweet just hours before he died of a suspected drug overdose.
In a haunting tweet on Thursday before the apparent overdose from fentanyl-laced cocaine, Johnson said: “I’m so HIGH I just TRIED to SHAMPOO my body.”
Speaking to The Sun, Colangeli’s cousin Maria Spencer voiced heartbreak over the performer’s sudden, tragic death.
“Enrico (Ricky) was incredibly loved by his entire family, and we’ll miss him more than words can describe,” she said.
Spencer described her cousin as “not only a smart, talented comedian but was also a highly skilled carpenter who worked for his family’s construction company.”
She said her entire family has been left “deeply saddened” by his passing.
“Losing Ricky is a true heartbreak and is a devastating loss for his siblings, nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins who have many fond memories of family Sunday dinners, amazing Christmas Eve meals, and other family celebrations that can only be remembered as epic,” she added.
“We loved Ricky dearly and his death is leaving a hole in our hearts that is somewhat comforted by knowing he is now at peace in the arms of his loving parents, Lynda and Rico, who we lost in 2019.”
Colangeli was first identified as one of the fatalities following an Instagram post by the HaHa Comedy Club on Sunday.
The Massachusetts native regularly performed at the club, as did Johnson.
“We lost two HaHa Family Members,” the club wrote alongside a photo of Johnson and Colangeli smiling together. “Make Everyone Laugh in Heaven.”
Jack Assadourian Jr., whose parents own the HaHa, told The Sun that he will be hosting a memorial for Johnson and Colangeli in LA on Thursday to commemorate the two men, both of whom “had a heart of gold”, he said.
Calling Johnson and Colangeli “two of the most important people” in his life, Assadourian, 36, said he had known the pair for more than a decade and at one time lived with them both.
“They both were the life of the party and would light up a room. You always wanted to be around them,” he said, adding the three would talk or see one another around six times each week.
“We did shows together, toured together, spent holidays together, birthdays and major events – or even it was just on Monday,” Assadourian added. “We were a family.”
