A spokesperson for the Riverside Sheriff’s Department said the cause of death is under investigation and more information should be available by Friday.

Bertrand Hug, owner of Mille Fleurs and Mr. A’s, told KGTV that his son was on his way to help manage the family’s newest restaurant in Palm Desert, Augusta Modern.
