Erick Morillo’s death caused by ‘acute ketamine toxicity’ according to autopsy

DJ Erick Morillo's death is said to have been caused by an "acute ketamine toxicity".

The world-famous producer was found dead at his home in Miami Beach on September 1, but it is believed he died in August with his death initially going undetected.

Erick, famed for his hit I Like To Move It, which topped charts across the globe in January 1994, was just 48 at the time of his death.

The track remains his biggest record to date, raking in over 10million views on YouTube and featuring in several TV shows and film franchises.

His cause of death was confirmed to E! News by a Miami-Dade medical examiner.

The examiner went on to say that Erick's death had been ruled as an accident.

His death came two weeks after he pleaded not guilty to sexual battery – he was arrested and charged over the incident which was alleged to have happened at his Miami Beach home back in December 2019.

Local police said that the victim reported Morillo making "several advances towards her," which she rejected.

A representative for Erick told Mail Online: "Mr Morillo's arrest is based on an incident that occurred back on December 7, 2019. Since then, Mr Morillo has fully cooperated with the police."

At the time of his death, a representative for the Columbian star's family said that he "was well-loved by his family and he had a lot of love to give".

Erick released his first record, The New Anthem, as part of his Reel 2 Real partnership in 1992, with his last release, Fifth Element, becoming available in 2019.

He continued to work on the DJ scene until the coronavirus pandemic swept across the globe in March.

His last social media post on July 30 was a link to a new DJ mix.
