"Heavy D Cause of Death Pulmonary Embolism"Heavy D’s cause of death was announced by Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office and concluded the rapper died because of pulmonary embolism. “Now That We Found Love” singer died on November 8 in Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office released preliminary autopsy report on Tuesday. The report states the 44-year-old Much-loved rapper is the victim of pulmonary embolism, a blood clot that blocks the lung’s pulmonary artery, and also suffered from deep leg vein thrombosis and heart disease. The chief of the Los Angeles County department of coroner, Craig Harvey said the blood clot was formed during an extended airplane ride from London to Los Angeles. Heavy D’s death was reported as “natural.”

On November.8, Dwight Arrington Meyers aka Heavy D collapsed outside his Beverly Hills home because of breathing problem while returning from a morning shopping trip. He immediately rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and died after some time. Initially, police believed he died because of pneumonia as he had been using cough syrup for symptoms and being treated by a private physician.

Medical experts say pulmonary embolism is equivalent of a heart attack and also called as silent killer. But, autopsy report confirmed his weight was not the cause of death and in recent years he was slimmed down from 300 pounds. Heavy D made his final performance at a Michael Jackson tribute show Oct. 8 in Cardiff, Wales. The final autopsy report will come in next couple of weeks.
