Authorities suspect that Lamar Odom overdosed on cocaine and other drugs before he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel earlier this month, the Associated Press reports.

The AP obtained search warrant records on Thursday, Oct. 23, that included testimony from Michael Eisenloffel, a Nye County sheriff's detective.

"I believe that Mr. Odom may be — or may have been — under the influence of a controlled substance," Eisenloffel stated.

In addition, Eisenloffel said onlookers claimed that the former NBA star ingested "an unknown substance in the form of an unidentified pill, which he obtained from his pocket," and prostitutes "heard him snorting."

TMZ reported on Thursday that Khloe Kardashian's husband, 35 — the pair have decided to dismiss their divorce case — underwent two emergency surgeries at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Hospital. Visitors have reportedly been banned, but Kardashian, 31, continues to remain by his side.

"This is a huge wakeup call for Lamar, for his friends and family," a source told Us. "Everyone is just really hoping for the best."

As previously reported, the Kardashian-Jenner clan visited Odom at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas before he was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. on Monday. The athlete's ex Liza Morales and their children — Destiny and Lamar Jr. — also visited him in Las Vegas. On Thursday, Morales and the kids were spotted in NYC.
