The infamous promoter’s cause of death was acute poisoning with fentanyl, acetylfentanyl, heroin and methamphetamine, the New York City Chief Medical Examiner’s office confirmed to TMZ.
OCME did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Alig was found dead on Christmas Eve 2020 aged 54 from an alleged heroin overdose. Ex-boyfriend Ben Silva discovered it just before midnight and detectives recovered several zippered plastic bags, apparently containing heroin, from the home, along with drug paraphernalia, said responsible at the time.
A source later told Page Six that Alig, who had previously served time for murder, knew he would die by the end of 2020.
“Michael told me he’s probably not going to make it through the year. He started making the movie “Party Monster 2,” which was… footage of his release from prison, ”the insider explained.
“It was like a documentary. Michael told me, “I will never see any money because they said they would only release it after [longtime collaborator and DJ] Keoki or I are dead. “
Alig and Robert “Freeze” Riggs served jail time for killing Club Kid member Andre “Angel” Melendez, dismembering his body, and dumping it into the Hudson River in 1996.
Alig was released from prison in 2014, but continued to pursue his Club Kid heyday and take drugs.
The Club Kids went to war with Alig’s mother, Elke Blair, over his ashes after his death. Blair initially agreed to share her ashes with the Club Kids, but then removed the plug, telling Page Six she felt intimidated by Alig’s longtime confidante, Rachael Cain.
Strangely, Blair said she felt Cain was pressuring her not only to drop Alig’s remains at Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery, but also to choose her as his final resting place.
Ultimately, the Kids Club planned a digital memorial for him in Green-Wood.
