RIP JEFFREY SIMPSON (November 30, 1974 – March 20, 2024)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Wednesday at 5:36 p.m.

Ruling by the deputy medical examiner was published on May 26, presumably after the results of tox screening had come back positive for the drugs. This is considered an accidental drug overdose.

The government investigator initially provided the place of death as a “ship stateroom” before later changing it.
