The office of the Los Angeles County coroner has completed its investigation into the death of Andrew Breitbart on March 1, and has confirmed that he died of natural causes, namely heart failure.
Chief Coroner Investigator Craig Harvey told Breitbart News that the final autopsy report would be released next week.
A press release issued by the Department of Coroner (below) notes: "No prescription or illicit drugs were detected. The blood alcohol was .04%," a negligible amount.
The press release concludes: "No significant trauma was present and foul play is not suspected."

You’re right, it was a conspiracy. My OCD led me astray...

I asked Dana Loesch why theres no PayPal and she replied that PayPal wont let a trust set up an account. Bummer. But checks still work.
Extremities swelling I knew but fluid in lungs never occurred to me. Good info well put. Thanks!
this is true; I had to have an IV drip once, over a period of hours (I was told it had to be very slowly dripped into my system). Doc was very concerned about how low my potassium level was and said it is dangerous for your heart. I didn't know about that; my father has low potassium, too, so I don't know if it's hereditary? I often get leg/toe cramping, which I think is related to my potassium level getting low (then I remember to take my vitamins, which have potassium in it. As long as I'm taking vitamins regularly, the cramps don't come return).
I wasn’t bickering with anyone.
Misleading reporting IMHO.
I’m pretty sure they are way better off than me...
How about a check to the Wounded Warriors Foundation?
I loved Andrew, huge fan, but he had recently experienced a previous serious heart attack and had a very sick heart. He kept working 16 hours a day. His friends were not surprised when he passed away. Nothing nefarious here.
Or taking Niacin and Chinese Red Yeast powder to reduce cholesterol levels....
Says Spokeshave whose cholesterol level is 170
That was my first thought when I saw his speech. In truth, I thought, “He doesn’t look well. If he keeps this up, he’s going to have a heart attack.” Sorry to say it. Makes me feel a bit guilty.
Was it painful?
Actually, no. I was already in the hospital for something else. Fell asleep,or so I thought. Woke up in a room on a table with 15 staffers in the room, one of whom was doing CPR. Now THAT is painful. Felt like my ribs were broken.
And no, I didn’t see the light or any of my dead family members or friends.
Contrary to popular belief, a heart attack or cardiac arrest can happen without the proverbial feeling of an elephant sitting in your chest. This is particularly true ofho women, but also can be for men. So if Mr. Breitbart had no apparent symptoms, I’m not surprised.
As young as he was serious health problems never occurred to me but it fit in retrospect. Terribly sad and such a loss for all who loved him.
A hell of a man really! He looks good there. Saw him several times on Red Eye and he looked and sounded perfectly healthy then.
I would see AB on ‘Red Eye,’ which I watch often enough.
Since his death believe I read somewhere (was it here?? or maybe some on ‘Red Eye’ who knew him said this) that he was always on the go, didn’t sleep much, had a million friends, etc.
He had a huge agenda.
The body can take only so much - needs rest/sleep to repair and regenerate.
Guess some can get away with it, and others don’t.
I agree with you. The man has passed, we have to take care of the living.
