Attorney Brian Loncar’s Death Ruled Cocaine Overdose

He died a few days after burying his teenage daughter.

Known as “The Strong Arm,” lawyer Brian Loncar was found in the front seat of his Rolls-Royce Wraith in front of his downtown office on December 4. The Dallas County medical examiner’s office now says he died of an accidental cocaine overdose; heart disease was a contributing factor. The 56-year-old had struggled with addiction for years and the days after his daughter Grace took her own life had brought that battle back to the foreground. This story doesn’t get any less sad.
