Bodybuilding superstar Rich Piana would snort lines of pre-workout powder like it was cocaine … this according to the death report obtained by TMZ Sports.
We broke the story … investigators found white powder at the apartment where Piana suffered a medical emergency back in August. He died 18 days later.
Law enforcement spoke with Piana’s girlfriend to try and find out what the powder was — and she told investigators it was CON-CRET PRE workout powder (Lemon-Lime) … which is advertised as a high-caffeine booster.
Piana’s GF told cops, “He would snort this powder” … and she does not believe it was anything illicit.
So, what did cause Piana’s medical emergency? Officials say the autopsy was essentially inconclusive … though it revealed Piana had heart disease.
Unclear if the 20 bottles of steroids found in his home contributed in any way either.
Piana was 46.
