The investigation into nightlife impresario Dean Johnson’s death this weekend keeps digging up scandal:

A second man died a week earlier in the same D.C. apartment where cops found the body of gay nightlife impresario Dean Johnson, the Daily News has learned.

Violent crime detectives are investigating both deaths, which cops believe were likely drug overdoses. The apartment belongs to 47-year-old Steven Saleh, an out-of-work former Commerce Department employee who sent Johnson a train ticket to come visit.

The invite came just days after the two exchanged e-mails in which Saleh lamented that a friend had just overdosed before his eyes.

“It was his choices that led to his demise,” Johnson replied the following day, trying to console Saleh.

Johnson allegedly took anti-depressants and sleeping pills, which may have contributed to his death. That and, perhaps, some bad drugs.

Don’t forget Johnson’s memorial tonight at Rapture Cafe. 8pm.
