Law enforcement sources tell us no drugs or alcohol were found near Hof's body Tuesday when paramedics arrived at his Love Ranch home in Crystal, Nevada.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Hof's death was announced during the Nye County Commission meeting by Chairman John Koenig, who said Hof "went to sleep last night and didn't wake up this morning". "The Clark County coroner will conduct an autopsy", Muth said in a statement.

Hof previously starred in an HBO series about his business.

Ahead of the birthday celebration, Hof teased on Twitter that the rapper and reality television star Flavor Flav would be there. "Nobody ever would do that", Hof said then. His Love Ranch brothel outside Pahrump is where the National Basketball Association player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015.

He was most famous for being a champion of legal prostitution and owning a number of brothels throughout Nevada.

The brothel was temporarily shuttered twice this year by regulators who said Hof failed to renew licenses and get proper permits for renovations.

The hard-partying, always quotable Hof was running for seat in the Nevada state Assembly, after knocking off an incumbent Republican in June.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, former madam Heidi Fleiss, Trump ally Roger Stone and Americans for Tax Reform founder Grover Norquist were also in attendance at the rally on Monday.
