According to the Los Angeles Times, the autopsy results of the Clark County Coroner's Office are inconclusive surrounding the death of 24 year old California man Montgomery Tsang at EDC 2014 which took place this past weekend in Las Vegas. The cause of death is expected to be determined pending the results of a toxicology report.
Reports indicate that Tsang died at University Medical Center at about 6:15 a.m on Saturday morning. The toxicology tests will look for drugs or others substances in his system that could have contributed to his death, said Jennifer Jacobs, a senior investigator for the Clark County coroner. No time frame has been given as to when the results of the tests can be expected back.
Insomniac spokeswoman Jennifer Forkish issued the following statement: "We are deeply saddened by this news, and hope that everyone will join us in keeping his family and friends in their thoughts during this very difficult time."
Eyewitness accounts state that Tsang experienced seizure like convulsions while waiting for a shuttle to leave the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the venue where Electric Daisy Carnival was held. Some preliminary reports indicate that Tsang might have suffered from a pre-existing medical condition, but this has not been confirmed.
Insomniac moved the Electric Daisy Carnival to Las Vegas in 2011 after a 15 year old girl died in Los Angeles (the event's original location) from an ecstasy overdose in 2010. In 2012, two festival attendees died off festival grounds in Las Vegas. The same year at EDC Chicago, 30 people were hospitalized for drug related medical problems.
Last year in New York City at Electric Zoo (produced by Made Event), two drug related deaths resulted in the cancellation of the third and final day of the festival
