Coroner: Kraddick Cause Of Death Due To Heart Troubles
July 29, 2013


Kidd Kraddick
While reports on Saturday night originally claimed Kidd Kraddick had passed away from a brain aneurysm, the Times-Picayune in New Orleans reported today that his death was caused by "cardiac disease." According to the paper, preliminary autopsy results released today by the Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Office and investigator Tommy Evans showed that "Heart disease was evident."

Jefferson Parish Deputy Coroner Dr. Granville Morse spoke to The Dallas Morning News more extensively, saying, "His heart was enlarged. You have several vessels, and three were diseased -- the worst of which was 80 percent blocked. That combination, an enlarged heart and cardiac disease, when someone dies like this it's usually dysrhythmia," which leads to an irregular heartbeat.

"What happens is your heart goes into a non-perfusable rhythm," Morse continued. "In English that means: imagine you turned off the faucet for the blood to go back to the brain. It not only doesn't get to the brain, but it doesn't get to the heart. Both stop working simultaneously."

All this information came from the preliminary autopsy, and the paper notes that nothing will be final until the toxicology report is finished, which could happen by the end of this week. Morse added, "Until we get that back, we don't know for sure."
