EDM musician Charles Ingalls died after overdosing on a cocktail of drugs including cocaine and fentanyl, Davidson County autopsy and toxicology results released this week show.
Ingalls was discovered dead by a friend in a room at a Nashville hotel on McGavock Pike on Dec. 10, the Metro Nashville Police Department reported. He was 25.
At the scene, investigators said there was no evidence of trauma to the Reno, Nevada-based musician’s body.
A four-page autopsy, conducted Dec. 11 by Davidson County Forensic Pathologist Chester Gwin, shows Ingalls died as a result of “combined toxic effects of alprazolam, cocaine, fentanyl and mitragynine.”
