According to the report, police were called to the party just after midnight and pronounced Johnson and the two others were dead at the scene.

Law investigators believe all four people ingested cocaine laced with fentanyl, a synthetic opioid similar to morphine. The drug is believed to be 50 times more potent than heroin.

Autopsies are being performed on the three deceased victims, which are currently at the Los Angeles Coroner's Office. 

As of yet, it is unclear who supplied the drugs, and whether other people at the party also consumed the laced cocaine.   

Many fans and celebrity fans of the deceased loved ones have been paid tribute to on social media.
