Lamar Odom Loses Another Friend In Suspected Drug-Related Death

June 22, 2015  |  

Less than two weeks after the death Lamar Odom’s high school pal, Jamie Sangouthai, the former Clippers forward is facing another devastating loss.

According to Us Weekly, Bobby Heyward, 30, died Saturday from a suspected drug overdose. Heyward, who worked as a producer and writer, was a friend Odom and Sangouthai, who also died from drug-related complications.

Eerily, Heyward had just taken to Instagram with a tribute to Sangouthai days before his untimely death, writing:

#RIP To my big brother Jamie who always brought light into any room he walked into and laughter as well at all times J you will always be missed. Family for life. #BandOfBrothers #tbt

While the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office did confirm Heyward’s passing, they did not reveal his cause of death.

Sangouthai died as a result of a bacterial skin infection known as fasciitis, which is caused by IV drug abuse.
