The late rapper's autopsy revealed that Heavy D died from a pulmonary embolism. A long flight from Europe may have contributed to his death as well.

The embolism resulted from a blood clot traveling from a leg vein into an artery in his lungs. Blood clots can build from long stationary periods and Heavy's flight from Wales could have caused the clot to form.

L.A.'s Coronor's Office also revealed Heavy had heart disease which also could have contributed to his death.

Heavy was only 44 years old when he passed away November 9th.

    why wasn't this revealed in the first autopsy? they open the lung and see the clot. DONE. I understand they had to wait for all the histology and tox to come back–but to wait this long is crazy. I hope they let his family know right off so they could have some peace.

    RIP Heavy D!
