A key witness in the beating case of Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium died suddenly, apparently of an allergic food reaction.
According to law enforcement sources familiar with the case, Matthew Lee died Sunday after eating a salad that apparently contained nuts, which caused the allergic reaction. The coroner has not determined a cause of death, however.
Stow and Lee went to the Dodgers’ home opener together with a group of friends.
It’s unclear how this will affect the case against Stow’s alleged attackers, but the sources said Lee was an important witness.
However, officials have said they have physical evidence in addition to the evidence provided by eyewitnesses to the beating.
Los Angeles police detectives said Monday they were trying to find additional Giants fans from the Bay Area who were assaulted by the suspects.
