As mentioned in previous reports, the Japanese police have yet to release the toxicology report on Ms. Furlong and her friend that accompanied her to the concert. The friend was found with a second American, Mr. Blackston, a professional dancer that toured with the 19-year-old musician currently under arrest, in his hotel room. The friend claims she has no memory of the events that transpired the evening of Ms. Furlong’s death. Police suspect both women were drugged.
