According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s report obtained by Radar, his death occurred after taking drugs and having sex with a man he met on the dating app Grindr.

“Mr. Burrous was with a companion in a hotel. He was engaged in various sexual activities with his companion, then he inserted methamphetamine into his rectum,” the autopsy report said.

“Later on, in the encounter Mr. Burrous inserted a second rock of methamphetamine through his anus and put on a mask and dusted the filters with ‘poppers,’” the coroner’s report said, and continued: “His companion inserted his hand through his anus. Mr. Burrous began grunting then vomited and became unresponsive.”

CPR was performed before the paramedics arrived and he was pronounced dead in the emergency room.

“There was concern for the presence of amyl nitrates (poppers) in the system, however, toxicology testing did not confirm the presence of this substance,” the autopsy report stated.

The KTLA anchor was married to Mai Do-Burrous and they had one daughter.
