Brothel Owner Dennis Hof Dies at 72 at Love Ranch

"I just confirmed with Nye County sheriff's deputy that Dennis Hof passed away this morning", Muth tweeted. His body was found at one of his brothels in Crystal, the Nye County Sheriff says. He was discovered by longtime friend Ron Jeremy - who went to his room to wake him for a scheduled lunch at the Pahrump Senior Center - around 11:00 a.m.

According to the website of his most famous brothel, the BunnyRanch in Carson City - which was featured in the HBO series "The Cathouse" - Hof owned seven brothels in Nevada, as well as a strip club, cigar bar and nightclub. Though no foul play is suspected, witnesses say the fatal incident occurred after a campaign rally for State Assembly.

Sheriff Sharon Wehrly, who also is the county coroner, also was at the party. An autopsy will be conducted by the Clark county coroner in Las Vegas. His Love Ranch brothel outside Pahrump is where the National Basketball Association player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015.

The brothel was temporarily shuttered twice this year by regulators who said Hof failed to renew licenses and get proper permits for renovations.

Hof had denied any wrongdoing.

"I'm stunned. This is not the turn I would've expected", his Democratic opponent Lesia Romanov told The Las Vegas Review-Journal. This year, he ran as a Republican and earned backing from Trump's associate Roger Stone and the tax-cut activist Norquist.
