  • Dennis Hof

But now, just three years later, Dennis Hof - the owner of the infamous Nevada brothel - has passed away inside his own brothel.

Nye County sheriff Lt. David Boruchowitz said an employee at the brothel summoned authorities a little before 11 a.m. Tuesday after Hof was found unresponsive and not breathing.

No word yet on the cause of Hof's death. He was found Tuesday morning by Jeremy, who went to wake him for a meeting.

Boruchowitz says there is no sign of foul play. An autopsy will be conducted by the Clark county coroner in Las Vegas. "I'm heading out to Love Ranch Vegas now".

The brothel was temporarily shuttered twice this year by regulators who said Hof failed to renew licenses and get proper permits for renovations. "Hof is the most high-profile legal "pimp" ever".

In addition to his legislative campaign, Hof fought a push to outlaw brothels and had problems with local regulators in the two counties where he ran licensed bordellos.

Hof had denied any wrongdoing.

A colorful Nevada brothel owner who was running for the state legislature as a Republican has died unexpectedly but his name will remain on the ballot for the November election, officials said.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, former madam Heidi Fleiss, Trump ally Roger Stone and Americans for Tax Reform founder Grover Norquist were also in attendance at the rally on Monday.
