WATERBURY — A 21-year-old exotic dancer found unconscious in a bathroom Saturday night at Mr. Happy’s Cafe, a strip club on Homer Street, died Sunday at Waterbury Hospital, police said.

According to Lt. Christopher Corbett, a police spokesman, the woman is a city resident, but he declined to release her name until an autopsy can be completed. The procedure is scheduled for today.

An employee at the club found the woman unconscious, but breathing at about 10:30 p.m., Corbett said. There are no signs of foul play in connection with her death, he added.

“We are investigating the possibility it was a drug overdose,” he said.

The woman was hospitalized Saturday after she was found in the bathroom, but died Sunday, he said. Family members have been notified of her death.

The club has been the scene of police and fire calls, including two small fires in 2005 and 2006 that sent customers and scantily clad women into the parking lot.
