A county coroner has confirmed that the death of Katie Dix was caused by drug overdose.
Katie Dix, as well as Tracy Nguyen, attended HARD Summer last year at the Fairgrounds in Pomona. Dix was found unresponsive and rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
According to KTLA, “Dix’s death was the 24th confirmed drug-related death nationwide since 2006 among people who went to raves organized by L.A.-area companies. Twelve died in Southern California — four in San Bernardino County and eight in Los Angeles County — and five in the Las Vegas area.”
Following the two deaths in 2015, the owner and operator of the fairgrounds said that it has no plans to host a rave on the premises in 2016.
