• Donny Davis was found unresponsive in his hotel room on Feb. 22
  • Police suspected foul play but no arrests were made in connection with his death
  • Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said the case remains open

Donny Davis died from ethanol and fentanyl intoxication, a coroner confirmed Thursday. The comedian was found dead in a hotel room in Las Vegas on Feb. 22. He was 43.

In a report released days after his death, the Clark County Fire Department said foul play was suspected in his death. Hotel security went to his room based on a report of an unconscious man "turning blue and biting his tongue" and performed chest compressions on Davis. Four other people were present in the room at the time.

The fire department also arrived at the scene. Davis was rushed to a hospital but was later pronounced dead.

According to a female witness, she met the comedian with some friends and another man at Resorts World's Dawg House Bar around midnight. She said a bartender denied Davis service later that night, saying the comedian was "too intoxicated." Davis then reportedly returned to his hotel room at 3.30 a.m.

The witness said she and her friends went to Davis' hotel room at around 5.00 a.m. and noticed that the comedian was sitting in a chair. Upon noticing that his hands and face were turning purple, she touched his hand and realized he was freezing and not breathing anymore. That's when they decided to call hotel security.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said the case remains open. No arrests have been made in connection with the incident. The Clark County Coroner's Office ruled Thursday that the comedian's cause of death was ethanol and fentanyl intoxication.

Davis performed alongside Britney Spears for many years in Las Vegas, toured with Joe Jonas, and frequently appeared in shows of big stars such as Miley Cyrus and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. He also used to perform at a party bar, called Beacher's Madhouse, and hosted private parties for celebrities, including Demi Lovato and Mariah Carey.

Davis also made appearances in the 2017 comedy "It's Gawd!" and the 2013 show "Pain & Gain."
