According to a statement by a law enforcement official, and reported last night by the Wall Street Journal, Pastor Zachery Tims had a white powdery substance on his body when he was found deceased in a Times Square hotel this past Friday evening.
WFTV in Orlando is reporting that the medical examiner said an autopsy on Monday was inconclusive as to the cause of death. More tests will have to be done over the next few weeks to determine the cause of death.
The Wall Street Journal story contends that a law enforcement official has said that police found a glassine (very thin and smooth paper that is air and water resistant) envelope with a white powdery substance inside the right pocket of his shorts.
The white powdery substance is believed to be narcotics. Another law enforcement official told the Wall Street Journal:
What that white powdery substance is and whether it played a role in Mr. Tims’ death is still to be determined.
Police found no trauma to the body and at this point foul play is not suspected.
