Case Closed, Stephen Gately Died of Natural Causes

January 22, 2010 (8:41 am) GMT
No more investigation will be conducted as the final result of his autopsy has been issued and it indicates no foul play but Stephen's ailing heart.

Three months after his sudden death, Stephen Gately is pronounced dead out of natural causes. Judge Carmen Abrines confirmed on Thursday, January 22 that heavy drinking and cannabis smoking that Gately did the night before he passed away were not factors in the unfortunate event.

The result came from a pathologist who concluded that instead of an accidental death, Gately died out of undiagnosed heart condition. The member might not be aware that the disease has thickened his arteries and caused a cardiac arrest. Early autopsy which was performed a few days after his death also indicated natural cause which was identified as 'acute pulmonary edema'.

Stephen Gately was found lifeless by his partner Andy Cowles at their Majorca, Spain villa in October last year. A vigil attended by his bandmates, friends, fans and family was conducted before he was laid to rest in Ireland on October 16.
