Heavy D Death

The mysterious death of rapper and actor Heavy D has been solved.

An El Lay coroner determined the Now That We Found Love singer died of not only a pulmonary embolism caused by a blood clot in his lung, but several other conditions including deep leg vein thrombosis and arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

While those conditions, which are associated with obesity, are entirely preventable, they often go undiagnosed until it's too late.

The 44-year-old unexpectedly passed away on November 8th after he collapsed at his Beverly Hills home.

Rest in peace, D!
