The family of late star Jeff Conaway had an autopsy performed over the weekend, just in case:
“Jeff's sisters are aware of his long battle with prescription drugs, and they know that this was the contributing factor in Jeff's death, but at the same time they wanted to set their minds to rest.”
If you're thinking to yourself that you didn't hear anything in the time leading up to his death that was suspecting of foul play, you don't have to worry, because there wasn't.
But that doesn't mean that the family shouldn't have ordered one.
Conaway's ex-fiancé, Vikki Spinoza wasn't allowed to see Jeff in the hospital because his family secured a restraining order against her barring her from visiting. Conway and Spinoza had a very contentious relationship in which he accused her, in court documents, of injecting him with painkillers before orchestrating a police bust at the Los Angeles home they previously shared.
We aren't trying to imply anything, on the contrary, we think he passed with no foul play, but after hearing that reason we can't help but agree that it would be best just to be safe.
The results could take up to 6 weeks, but aren't expected to turn up anything shocking.
Our thoughts continue to go out to Jeff's family.
