The New Orleans Police Department is currently investigating a sudden death at the Oz nightclub during Southern Decadence weekend.

Danny Bettencourt was found dead early Monday morning inside the bar under questionable circumstances. A former employee of Oz, friends and former co-workers suspect fowl play in relation to Bettencourt’s death after some witnesses claimed to have seen him in a fight with a former co-worker before his death.

While the initial autopsy report deemed that there were no signs of severe trauma, NOPD is awaiting the final autopsy report.
