The deceased has been identified as Julia E. Crabbe, 21, of Reston, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

The Washington Redskins say they are aware of an investigation involving safety Montae Nicholson and are cooperating with authorities, according to the Associated Press.

Nicholson did not practice Thursday.

Original report: Nov. 14, 8:27 p.m.

An unconscious and unresponsive 21-year-old woman died Thursday morning at the Inova Emergency Room-Ashburn HealthPlex after she apparently suffered a drug overdose, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Two males reportedly brought the woman — whose identity authorities have not yet released — to the emergency room on Landmark Court in Ashburn around 1:30 a.m. before immediately leaving the area.

The woman was pronounced dead at the facility, and the two males were later identified and located.

According to TMZ, multiple sources related to the situation say one of the males is Washington Redskins safety Montae Nicholson.

Nicholson has not been arrested or charged with a crime and is cooperating with the LCSO Criminal Investigations Division, which is actively investigating the case.

In December 2018, Nicholson was charged with assault and battery and drunk in public following a fight at One Loudoun.

Is Dan going to support another person making bad, really bad decisions?

Bad news follows people who put themselves on the wrong track. Two things are apparent: the player was drunk in public last year and in the presence of a 21 year old who overdosed on drugs this year. He may not be a bad dude, but he sure makes bad decisions. Unfortunately, the redskins can't afford to keep him on the team.


oh no....this might ruin the redskins the player had nothing to do with it other than bringing her to of his buddies probably in some trouble….
