Before Aaliyah left us her estimated net worth was just over $30 millon.
In most states, it is the law that people who die in sudden or unexpected ways be given an autopsy. The reason for this is so that the coroner can rule out foul play, or m…urder.
Too much weight.
The autopsy finding in the death of Rhonda Hart was natural causes. She was not sick with any disease such as cancer at the time of her death.
There aren't any!!!!
You answered your own question. To prove the cause of death.
It was engine failure. These idiots are saying it crashed into another plane and that's not what happened. Gooogle it, its engine failure.
A postmortem examination to discover the cause of death or the extent of disease: "an autopsy report".(Perform a postmortem examination on a body or organ).
In World War 2
Why are the underlying and immediate causes of death both important when preparing an autopsy report?
I'm not a coroner but here is my answer: Underlying causes of death can predispose a person to die from immediate causes of death. That means underlying causes aka "chronic co…nditions" (they were there for a long time) can increase the likelihood of someone dying from an immediate cause. Example: a man who is 200 lbs overweight, has a stressful job, eats crap all the time and smokes three packs of cigarettes per day gets in a wicked argument with his wife and drops dead. The immediate cause turned out to be acute stress but that's not the whole story. The complete picture includes underlying causes i.e. obesity, smoking, stress (and everything that comes along with these: atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease); it is all this that really set the guy up to drop dead from an argument.
Aaliyah was in a flight amongst nine other people, when the plane they were travelling in crashed. She had many burns and a blow to the head. The pilot was under the influence… of drugs and alcohol.
The autopsy said she died from drowning in the bathtub of her hotel room, after she passed out; and the toxicology report, which was mentioned by the coroner, noted she had da…maged her heart from prolonged cocaine use.
Is a heart failure caused by electrical injury as a cause of death normally transparent enough in an autopsy?
Thank you very much for your reply, Jonethan. I asked the question, because in the country of my origin a guy had been - not too long time ago - convicted of double mu…rder of his wife and daughter. No deadly weapon was found, and there was only circumstantial evidence against the defendant. Crucially, the pathologists, who did the autopsies of the deceased, said that the both deceased died of heart failure caused by an electrical injury. But meanwhile, the same pathologists were unable to tell, whether the electrical injuries were administered with only one electrode or two of them. This remarkable inability of those pathologists seems to be strange to me, given they expressed certainty about the cause of both deaths. I am quite suspicious, whether their verdict of electrical injury as a cause of death was valid, reliable and trustworthy, or whether the pathologists resorted to this verdict only because they were under a strong pressure from the state attorneys and investigators to identify any cause of death whatsoever, but in fact, they found nothing unambiguous and conclusive during the autopsies. So in some corrupt institutional environment, where forensic pathologists can't afford to admit they have found no evident cause of death, they may resort to the insufficiently based verdict of electrical injury as a cause of death. Am I right?
