(L.A.) Enrique Menendez, 59, Died in a Hospital

Case Number: 2024-02355

Los Angeles County is reporting the death of a 59-year-old Latino male that occurred in a hospital.

The coroner’s office has identified the man as Enrique Menedez.

Manner of Death: Accident

Cause of Death: Methamphetamine Effects

RIP ENRIQUE MENENDEZ (October 6, 1964 – February 6, 2024)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Tuesday at 9:31 p.m.

The government investigator had initially misspelled the decedent’s surname as Menedez. This was corrected by April.

Ruling by the deputy medical examiner was published on April 11, presumably after the results of tox screening had come back positive for the meth. This is considered an accidental drug overdose.
