After his body was taken off the ship, the entire ship was dealing with police and drug-sniffing dogs everywhere. They were not playing around and many passengers were also removed from the boat.”

“This happened again when we got to Saint Maarten. When we docked there on Wednesday a whole new crew of police and dogs boarded the ship and searched everyone. More passengers were removed there too. It was crazy!”

As previously reported, authorities are waiting on Taylor’s autopsy and toxicology reports before releasing the cause of death. But according to multiple reports, it is considered to be a possible drug overdose that led to his untimely demise.

What's more — according to the source, the entire boat was searched by police and drug-sniffing dogs PRIOR to leaving Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Saturday!

“Whatever drugs got on this boat was missed by police and the dogs when they searched the boat before leaving last weekend. It has nothing to do with the fact that this is a gay cruise. It has to do with the fact that it is an unfortunate situation.”

“This cruise has been nothing but one big love bubble and it continues to be even in spite of this tragedy,” the insider added.
