Authorities have yet to determined the true caused of Heavy D’s death.
According to reports, the late Jamaican-American rapper’s autopsy results came back inconclusive. The Los Angeles coroner’s office has deferred judgment on what killed the rap legend suddenly. Authorities are now awaiting the result of toxicology tests.
Heavy D, whose real name is Dwight Errington Myers, died last week Tuesday (November 8th) after complaining of feeling ill.
Coroner’s spokesperson Ed Winter has already stated that no illegal drugs were found at the rapper’s Beverly Hills home, but that a doctor had recently prescribed medicine for a cough. “We need to see what’s in his system,” Winter said.
Winter said toxicology tests are common in cases when a relatively young, healthy person dies unexpectedly.
Heavy D had just returned from some shopping on the day of his death when he began complaining of difficulty breathing and collapsed. He died a short time later at a local hospital and officials believe his death is related to a medical issue and do not suspect foul play.
