Medical Examiner Comments On Randy Savage's Death
As noted earlier here on the website, the disclosure of Randy Savage's cause of death is being covered by several media news outlets including The Associated Press.

An autopsy by the Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner's Office revealed Savage had an enlarged heart with severe atherosclerosis of his coronary arteries. He suffered only minor abrasions and bruising from the May 20 crash in Seminole, Florida.

An article on TBO.com features more details on the medical examiner's findings.

"He had sustained no trauma from that crash," said William Pellan, the medical examiner's office director of investigations. "So the crash had nothing to do with his death. He just happened to be driving when he had a cardiovascular event."

Pellan added that he may have had a heart attack. He may have had some type of arrhythmia and his heart stopped beating, or his heart may have simply stopped beating.

"We don't see evidence of it (a heart attack) because he died right away," Pellan said.

A USA Today article notes that steroid use was not implicated in his cause of death.
