No drugs or drug paraphernalia were found in the room and Bendik was not known to be a hard partier or heavy drug user.

Bendik’s body was discovered in his hotel room by a maid. He was lying face-down in bed. Police speculate that he may have died in his sleep.

A club manager was the last to see him alive just before midnight Wednesday when Bendik left his establishment.
