We finally all get some answers. George Michael actually died of natural causes, the coroner reveals.
“Enquires into the death of George Michael have been concluded and the final post mortem report received. As there is a confirmed natural cause of death, being Dilated Cardiomyopathy with Myocarditis and Fatty Liver, the investigation is being discontinued and there is no need for an inquest or any further enquiries, the statement from Senior Coroner for Oxfordshire reads. “No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy.”
George Michael passed away at age 53, his rep confirmed. He died “peacefully at home.”
“It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peaceful at home over the Christmas period. The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.” The statement continued.
After the initially inconclusive autopsy, the Thames Valley Police said the investigation into his cause of death would continue. “The cause of death is inconclusive and further tests will now be carried out,” the statement read. “The results of these tests are unlikely to be known for several weeks. Thames Valley Police will prepare a file for the Oxfordshire Coroner. Mr. Michael’s death is still being treated as unexplained but not suspicious.”
