In the early-morning hours of January 12, Alex Omes died, suddenly and mysteriously, just hours before his lawsuit against Ultra Music Festival would finally go to trial.

Four weeks later, the Miami-Dade County medical examiner has not determined the cause of the Miami nightlife icon and Ultra cofounder's death.

But the City of Miami Police Department has just released the incident report. And it lists Omes' death as "unclassified."

However, "1 clear plastic baggie with suspicious cocaine residue" was found at the scene.

As reported in New Times' recent news story, the police report confirms that Omes was found dead in his condo, unit 510 at the Bank Lofts, after his brother, Carlos, became worried when repeated texts and phone calls yielded no response.

The reporting officer writes: "I was approached by the victim's brother who stated that his brother (victim) didn't show up at court for his multi-million dollar case on 01/12/15. He has been calling his brother all day without an answer so he wanted to check on his well being. He also stated that his brother is stressed out because he is going through a lot of problems."

The incident report also recounts the discovery of Omes' death: "The property manager opened the victim's apartment door and there he was, in bed, unresponsive."

A short time later, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue arrived on the scene. And according to police, Omes was pronounced dead at 11:05 p.m. on January 12, 2015.

The cocaine was submitted into evidence, the report reads.

And the medical examiner's investigation is ongoing.
