Autopsy Completed on Katy Man Found Dead in Texans Player’s Pool, No Cause of Death Yet Determined

The autopsy has been completed on a Katy man who was found dead in the swimming pool of a Houston Texans player over the weekend, but no cause of death has yet been determined.

The Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office reported it completed the autopsy on 37-year-old Engram Lamar Crenshaw yesterday; however, Dr. Harminder Narula said the actual cause of death was still pending the completion of toxicology reports.

The toxicology review is expected to take several weeks.

Fort Bend County sheriff’s deputies said Crenshaw’s body was found shortly after 9:30 a.m. Sunday in the pool of Texans defensive end Antonio Smith’s estate. The dead man was fully clothed and there were no apparent signs of trauma.

Crenshaw was reportedly among the guests at a private party Saturday night. When a family member went to clean the pool area Sunday morning, she saw Crenshaw’s body.

Deputies and crime scene technicians spent several hours Sunday morning investigating the death at Smith’s million-dollar home in the 2000 block of Grand River Drive.

Sheriff’s Capt. James Burger said Crenshaw was last seen alive about 2 a.m.

Crenshaw was described as a “family friend” who had reportedly done detailing work on Smith’s vehicles.

Investigators said some 100 people attended the party and alcohol was served. Security was also hired for the event. About 25 of the party-goers spent the night at Smith’s home.

No other Texans players were reported to have attended the party.

Texans General Manager Rick Smith released a statement on the incident Sunday afternoon.

“We are aware of the situation. We are gathering facts and have no further comment at this time,” Smith said.
