Charlie Denihan, heir to the Denihan Hospitality Group fortune, was found dead in his Union Square West home Sunday evening, law enforcement sources told the New York Post.

Denihan, who was 29, is suspected to have died of a drug overdose and was found by a roommate in their 15 Union Square West home around 7:30 p.m., police told the Post. Crystal meth, cocaine and GHB were found in the home, according to the newspaper. Denihan’s family runs New York’s James, Affinia, Surrey, Mansfield and Shoreham hotels, and he was a management trainee at his family’s firm.

“We are devastated at the tragic and sudden loss of Charlie,” the Denihan family said in a statement cited by the newspaper. “He was a loving and remarkable son, brother, nephew, cousin, Godfather and friend. In this tragic time, we ask that you remember him in your prayers and respect our privacy as we mourn his passing.” [NYP]Julie Strickland
