A former Councilman was found dead of a possible drug overdose in an Ontario motel last week.

Mike Spence, previously served the City of West Covina as councilman, Mayor, and board member for West Covina Unified School District.

A worker at the Folk Inn Ontario Airport found Spence unresponsive in a motel room Thursday night and alerted authorities. Paramedics on the scene declared him dead at the scene. No cause of death has been named, but some have suggested a possible drug overdose as the reason following an initial investigation.
