(Death may be drug related)….The man died in El Centro Wednesday night.

65-year-old Arnulfo Velasquez from Calexico was pronounced dead at El Centro Regional Medical Center. Deputy Coroner Steven Green said the man had a medical history, but his family said he also was a long time drug user.

If toxicological tests are needed, it could be six to eight weeks before a cause is determined.
