It was River Phoenix's younger brother, a then 19-year-old Joaquin, who made the first call to 911 after the 23-year-old actor collapsed and began having seizures outside The Viper Room, a Hollywood club co-owned at the time by Johnny Depp. The "Stand By Me" star was pronounced dead at a hospital in the early hours of October, 31, 1993. A few weeks later, the Los Angeles County coroner's office said Phoenix died from "acute multiple drug intoxication" thanks to fatal levels of cocaine and morphine and that there was "no evidence of foul play."
