The man found dead in an apartment on the 1200 block on North Olive Drive on Aug. 8 apparently had committed suicide .
Lt. Robert Wesfall, the Sheriff’s detective who was investigating the incident, confirmed suicide as the cause of death of Kent Butler, who also went by the name Kent Bass and was known to call himself “Sir Kent.”
An online search shows that Bass apparently had lived in Beverly Hills and Palm Springs. No other information is available.
The address is wrong. It is 1116 N.Olive Dr.
I’m so sorry to read this. Did you know him? Kent was a friend… long ago… when I lived in LA. DO you have any other information?
I knew him toi in NY long ago so sorry for his death
