A model who was found dead inside her Monrovia apartment in September died of asphyxiation, the Coroner’s department said on Tuesday.
The woman’s cause of death was determined on Friday after toxicology reports were completed, Los Angeles County Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter said.
Tests found traces of cocaine and GHB in Lee’s body.
Lee’s boyfriend, Brain Randone, has been charged with torturing and killing Lee inside the couple’s Monrovia apartment on Sept. 11.
The 31-year-old Lee starred in adult movies and modeled under the name Felicia Tang.
Randone, 45, holds a bachelor’s degree from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and appeared on the 2000 Fox reality show “The Sexiest Bachelor in America.
*Super attorney Gloria Allred said Thursday she represents Tang’s mother to help her understand the legal system and process that will surround the events leading up to Brian Randone’s trial.
*Allred also said she objects to the use of “porn star” to describe Tang’s acting career.
*Finally, a Facebook page has apparently been established to help with any legal funds needed by Tang’s family.

PASADENA – The bail amount for a Monrovia man charged with torturing and murdering his girlfriend will remain at $2 million, a superior court judge determined Tuesday.
Brian Lee Randone is charged with beating and suffocating Felicia Lee at their Monrovia home. He faces life in prison if convicted.
The 45-year-old Randone was jailed last week on $2 million bail.
The defense asked for Randone’s bail amount to be lowered to $500,000 while prosecutors asked for an increase to $3 million. Pasadena Superior Court Judge Terry Smerling decided to stick with the $2 million amount. Randone appeared in court Tuesday and declared he was not guilty in the slaying.
