Lance Cade's Cause Of Death Revealed - Details
-- Former WWE performer Lance McNaught (a/k/a Lance Cade) died on August 13, 2010 from accidentally ingesting multiple drugs combined with the effects of a an enlarged heart, according to an autopsy report from a medical examiner in San Antonio, Texas.
A staffer of the Bexar County, Texas, Medical Examiner's Office said of McNaught's death to The New Haven Register in Connecticut: "The cause was ruled mixed drug intoxication, complicating a cardiomyopathy." His death was ruled accidental.
The medical examiner's report does not indicate whether McNaught's use of anabolic steroids contributed to cardiomyopathy, which has been linked to steroid abuse.
Robert Zimmerman, a spokesman for World Wrestling Entertainment, told the newspaper that WWE obtained e-mails written by McNaught to a fellow wrestler, saying he had ordered two types of steroids in March and expected to fail a drug test.
McNaught was released from WWE in October 2008, then rehired in September 2009. He was sent to drug rehabilitation at his request, but was released a second time in April.
-- Also, here is the story we posted earlier today regarding Luna Vachon's death:
The toxicology results are in for former WWE performer Gertrude 'Luna' Vachon.
The District Six Medical Examiner's office in Florida found that Luna died from an accidental overdose of painkillers and anti-anxiety medication.
TMZ.com reports that the 48-year-old wrestler had oxycodone and benzodiazepine in her system when she died in her Florida home back in August.
Shortly after her death, it was reported that investigators found crushed pill residue and snorting straws at multiple locations inside Luna's house.
Luna's ashes were scattered last month at the late Andre The Giant's ranch in North Carolina.
