INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 10, 2014)—A former friend of Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay died from an accidental overdose, determined the Marion County Coroner’s Office.

An autopsy revealed Kim Wundrum, 42, had multiple drugs in her system and died from acute polysubstance intoxication.

Wundrum was found in her townhome on March 2, two weeks before Irsay was arrested on charges of impaired driving and possession of a controlled substance. According to a police report, officers located an orange plate with white powder, a straw and a razor estimated at a $100 value in her townhome.

Sources and family members told FOX59 that Wundrum was a modest woman from Brownsburg who spent years trying to break her addiction to drugs. They said Irsay tried to help Wundrum get better.

Family members say she struck up a relationship with Irsay in the late 2000’s and began living in properties owned by the Colts or the Blue Trust, which is a Colts real estate entity signed off by the team attorney Daniel Emerson and Irsay’s right-hand man, Pete Ward.

FOX59 was told the Irsay’s friendship with Wundrum began to diminish, but Irsay, known for his charity and commitment to friends didn’t totally abandon her either. He made sure she at least had a place to live while she worked out her struggles.
