What was the cause of his death? Here is what we know.
The Night of His Death
According to Wikipedia, on July 10, 2005, Soto performed at The Laugh Factory in Los Angeles. He received a standing ovation from the audience for his brilliant performance. He seemed happy and healthy, and had no signs of any trouble. He left the club and went to the home of a friend, where he planned to spend the night. But something went wrong in his sleep. The next morning, his friend found him dead in his bed. He was only 35 years old.
The Cause of His Death
The coroner’s office conducted an autopsy to determine the cause of Soto’s death. The results were shocking. According to International Business Times, Soto died of an accidental drug overdose. He had a lethal combination of fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid, and other drugs in his system. Fentanyl is a drug that is used to treat severe pain, but it can also cause respiratory depression and death if taken in high doses or mixed with other substances. It is unclear how Soto obtained the drug, or why he took it. Some speculate that he may have been suffering from depression, anxiety, or chronic pain, and used the drug to cope. Others suggest that he may have been unaware of the potency of the drug, or that he may have taken it by mistake. Whatever the reason, his death was a tragic loss for the comedy world and his family.
