DJ Erick Morillo’s Cause Of Death Revealed Two Months After
The cause of death of popular American DJ Erick Morillo has been revealed. The Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that the DJ, known for his 1993 song “I Like to Move It” under the name Reel 2 Real, died of acute ketamine toxicity, E! Online reported.
According to the outlet, Morillo’s death is classified as an accident. The news comes two months after he died in his Miami Beach home on 1st September.
In 2017, Morillo opened up about his struggles with ketamine and alcohol addiction.
“I went to rehab three times and even after all three I never gave up alcohol. That was what seemed to keep pulling me under. So, besides the fact that I hurt so many people, I think the most difficult part was coming to the realization that I was going to have to go completely sober. He said in an interview with Skiddle
“It was a scary thing because you think life is going to be boring then. What’s life going to be like if I can’t drink and if I can’t go to a place where there’s drinking? You stop worrying about the future and you start focusing on the right now. So, the beginning of being completely sober was the hardest part. Once I had six months under my belt it was very easy.” He added.
Morillo also said he had been going to therapy and was happy where his life was at the time.
