Gossip site TMZ quoted members of law enforcement who said on Friday that results of singer George Michael’s autopsy are “inconclusive.”
“Law enforcement says there will be further tests performed to pinpoint why Michael died on Christmas day, in his sleep. We were told earlier the medical examiner would perform toxicology tests,” TMZ reported. “Sources denied there was any evidence Michael OD’d, but it is interesting the autopsy showed no apparent reason why the singer passed.”
Authorities maintain that Michael’s death does not seem to be criminal in any way. The singer’s manager said he died of heart failure.
In the months before his death, Michael made few public appearances. Photos allegedly taken in September show that he put on a considerable amount of weight in recent years. It is unclear if this was the byproduct of medication usage or any sort of physical ailment.
