Dodgers Beating Case

KEY WITNESS DIES

BAD SALAD SUSPECTED

8/1/2011 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0801-bryan-stow-BN
One of the men who was with Bryan Stow at Dodgers Stadium on the day he was attacked has died ... and officials believe his death can be chalked up to a salad that contained nuts.

Matthew Lee -- Stow's friend who accompanied Bryan to the game on March 31 -- died yesterday. Lee's official cause of death has not been released -- but according to reports, officials believe his death was the result of an allergic reaction triggered by nuts in a salad he had eaten for lunch.

Lee was regarded as an important witness in the case against Stow's alleged attackers -- Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood.

According to court documents, prosecutors believe Sanchez punched Lee in the parking lot of Dodgers Stadium before attacking Stow.

Both suspects have yet to enter a plea in the case.

Good lord TMZ, that lame headline is straight out of the News of the World. "Bad Salad Susupected??" That is the dumbest way you could have worded that, he died of an allergy! That's sad; there are a lot of bad vibes surrounding this whole case. Get well soon Bryan!
