While a heart attack was the suspected culprit, many wondered if drugs were involved in causing this untimely death. Nonetheless, it appears Menza’s passing had nothing to do with drug use as law enforcement sources dished to TMZ some results from the musician’s autopsy.

Apparently, the autopsy showed the Germany native did in fact have heart disease. How sad!

Not to mention, officials searched the scene where Nick died and even interviewed those close to him. So, what did they find out?

Well, it looks like the late drummer had no recent history of addiction as he only dabbled a bit in using drugs in the past and had been sober for eight years. Huh.

While we’re heartbroken over Nick’s early death, we’re happy that his legacy isn’t tainted with a drug scandal. Our hearts go out to the artist’s loved ones during this trying time!
