Posted October 29, 2023 by with 0 comments

If it had been a cardiac event, which is why paramedics were reportedly called to Perry’s house yesterday, you would think that would’ve shown up in the autopsy. But, the autopsy came back inconclusive, so it’ll be weeks before a cause of death is revealed, pending the toxicology report. There were no signs of foul play and no drugs found at the scene, per authorities, but Perry struggled with addiction for decades, and his body had been through a lot over the years, including a gastrointestinal perforation and colon rupture that landed him in the hospital for five months.
