She was said to have called the paramedics, who declared him dead. No foul play was suspected.
His death was described as an accident by an autopsy report released on Monday. The musician had a history of drug and alcohol use, the report said.
A witness told the police that the night before Bobby Jnr’s. death, he had consumed tequila and cocaine, and “snorted” the painkiller Percocet.
