Investigators release details on Nick Menza’s cause of death

The death of former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza shocked the rock world when it was made public on Sunday. According to TMZ,

“Investigators have ruled out drugs as a factor in the death of former MEGADETH drummer Nick Menza.

“Law enforcement sources” have told the site that autopsy results indicated that the 51-year-old drummer did not succumb to a “stereotypical drug-related death.” They reached the conclusion that Menza had no recent history of drug use after conducting a search and interviewing people close to him.

Friends close to Menza said he’d been sober for eight years, and on-lookers at his last show described what appeared to be Nick having a seizure in his last moments. Autopsy results officially declared his passing the product of a heart attack.
