Cause of death: Cocaine overdose



Dubrowquietriot The test results are back: Quiet Riot singer Kevin Dubrow died of an accidental cocaine overdose, according to a report by the Associated Press.

Toxicology results were received Monday, according to a coroner in Las Vegas, where the 52-year-old singer died on Nov. 25 at his home.

Friends say Dubrow had been leading a clean and sober life for the last few years, so the results are somewhat surprising. According to one report, Dubrow had been dead for six days before his body was found.

Lori Lee Samson, who was either Dubrow's ex-girlfriend or his fiancee -- depending on who you listen to, was reportedly the last person to see him alive. Samson told KTNV that Dubrow texted her with his last words.

"At 2:40 am Monday he texted me 'I love you so much,' " Samson told the ABC affiliate.
