Thomas Kinkade Autopsy Results Booze Tranquilizers

More sad news for the Kinkade family.

Thomas Kinkade’s autopsy results are back and drugs and alcohol were indeed responsible for the ubiquitous artist’s untimely death.

The family originally insisted the passing was due to natural causes but the autopsy revealed "acute ethanol and Diazepam intoxication" were actually to blame.

The county medical examiner’s report stated:

"Mr. Kinkade died of respiratory depression as a result of a high concentration of ethanol combined with benzodiazepine use.”

The popular “painter of light” passed away April 6th. He was 54 and survived by his wife Nanette and live in girlfriend Amy-Pinto White.

Clearly all was not right around the time of his death.

In the past few weeks, Thomas’s brother Patrick spoke publicly about the painter’s long struggle with alcoholism and the painter’s widow filed a restraining order against his girlfriend.

Sad, sad stuff.
