Conservative writer and publisher Andrew Breitbart passed away on March 1, 2012 at the age of 43-years-old. Now, his cause of death has been released. The political writer had passed away from natural causes and there were no signs of prescription drugs in his system.
In addition, his blood alcohol level was at 0.4 percent – which was not determined to have played a role in his death. The coroner’s office released a statement, obtained first by Breitbart.com, stating that Andrew died from heart failure.
The L.A. County Coroner said, “No significant trauma was present and foul play is not suspected. It is anticipated that the final coroner report will be available for release within two weeks.”
He passed away at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after collapsing near his Brentwood home as he was walking his dog. Andrew is survived by his wife and four children. RIP.
