People magazine is reporting that producer and musician Erick Morillo –primarily known for his 1993 hit “I Like to Move It (Move It) – was found dead at his Miami home. A cause of death had not yet been determined.
“There were no apparent signs of foul play,” the Miami Beach department said. “The cause of death will be determined by the Miami Dade Medical Examiner’s Office.”
Morillo, who was accused of sexual battery in an alleged attack in December, had been arrested by Miami Beach police last month. He turned himself in on August 6, and was due to appear in court Friday, police said.
He denied all allegations.
Morillo was a 3-time winner of the DJ Awards’ Best House DJ and a 3-time winner of Best International DJ, including his most recent win in 2009.
