According to authorities, the cause of death was determined as Cardio Respiratory Arrest. Ku had been convicted approximately three years ago after a search was conducted at his residence by Orange Walk Police on the morning of June 23rd, 2014.

Police also managed to discover a clearing in Ku’s yard which contained one hundred seedlings of marijuana along with two separate bags containing four and nine pounds of marijuana respectively.
