Dennis Hof Dead At 72, Controversial Brothel Owner’s Cause of Death Unknown
Dennis Hof, the infamous Nevada brothel owner who made a bid for the state’s legislature this year, has died. Hof, 72, was found dead at one of his brothels on Tuesday, where he “went to sleep last night and didn’t wake up,” Nye County Commissioner John Koenig said, according to the Reno Gazette Journal. The brothel owner made waves this year when he pushed out incumbent James Oscarson in the Republican primary for the Assembly District 36 seat.
An employee at one of Hof’s brothels called authorities Tuesday morning after finding him unresponsive.
Hof owns four brothels in Nevada, including the famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch where Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband Lamar Odom overdosed on cocaine and was placed in a coma for three days in 2015. He also owns the Kit Kat Guest House, the Love Hotel and Sagebrush, all in Lyon County.
