According to The New York Coroner’s office, Wire Actor, Michael K Williams, 54 died as a result of ‘acute intoxication by the combined effects of fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine.’
Recall that the American Actor was found dead at his home in Brooklyn on 6 September. The death was ruled an accident.
Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent. It can cause death when taken in high doses or when combined with other substances.
Williams was discovered unconscious and facedown in the living room of his Williamsburg apartment by his nephew on September 6.
A doorman subsequently called 911 claiming Williams was ‘unresponsive’ and ‘felt cold’. Medics rushed to the scene, but declared the actor dead at 2:12pm.
