After carrying out an autopsy, Slovenian authorities reported on Wednesday that poker player Johannes Strassmann fell into the Ljubjanica river in Ljubljana, Slovenia, while under the influence of hallucinogenic drugs.
The Slovenian police did not want to reveal what the drugs were but Germany's Bild reporter Alessandro Alviani, who began working on the story and put together important pieces of information since the tragedy, revealed some details from Strassmann's last night in the Slovenian capital.
An eyewitness told Alviani that Strassmann "was out with three Slovenians. One of them was a good friend of his, while he barely knew the other two". The eyewitness added that one of the men was a "known drug dealer."
According to the story reported by Bild, "the group had been eating magic mushrooms, and around 10 p.m. Johannes suddenly left the table of the pubs they were all in, and ran away leaving his mobile phone behind."
