Lamar Odom Toxicology Results Will Be Turned Over to Prosecutors

Former NBA star was found unconscious in Nevada brothel on Oct. 13

Lamar Odom’s case is headed for the district attorney’s office.

A spokesman for the Nye County Sheriff’s Office told TheWrap on Tuesday that the office has received the toxicology results for former NBA star Odom, who was found unconscious in the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada on Oct. 13.

After the sheriff’s office has completed its investigation, it will turn the results and investigatory report over to the Nye County District Attorney, the spokesman said.

The spokesman, who did not state the results of the toxicology test, said that it’s “customary” to turn materials over to the DA when the sheriff’s office investigates a case.

The sheriff’s office won’t release the results or further information until the district attorney’s office decides to do so, the spokesman added.

In 911 calls made public the day after Odom’s brothel incident, brothel employees stated that Odom had admitted to using cocaine prior to arriving at the Love Ranch days before.

However, in an affidavit seeking a search warrant to draw blood from Odom, a detective for the sheriff’s office said that his investigation indicated that Odom had “possibly ingested cocaine” while at the brothel, and that prostitutes there had heard Odom “snorting” in the bathroom adjoining his bedroom.

The brothel workers also indicated that Odom had taken an unidentified pill.

TMZ reports that Odom’s blood tested positive for cocaine, and that the sheriff will recommend prosecution for felony drug use to the district attorney. However, the sheriff’s office spokesman would not confirm that to TheWrap.

Odom, who was transported to Los Angeles for further treatment after being hospitalized in Nevada, has made “miraculous progress,” his family said last week.
