Harry Morton died after suffering from an irregular heartbeat, combined with blockages in several arteries in his heart, so his official cause of death has been listed as ‘natural.’
It’s hard to imagine a healthy 38-year-old would die from “natural” causes, but the Los Angeles County Coroner found nothing else in Harry’s system, including no issues from a recent nose surgery.
In the autopsy report, obtained by The Blast, the coroner says, toxicology tests came back “negative for ethanol and did not detect any pharmaceutical drugs or drugs of abuse.”
Also, they confirm, “It was reported that Mr. Morton has undergone surgical correction of a deviated septum a few weeks prior to his death. There was no evidence of meningitis, cerebral abscess, or endocarditis.” In other words, the surgery was not a factor.
But, Harry’s heart had several arteries that were blocked, and the tragic part is that it’s likely Morton had NO idea he was suffering from this specific ailment. In fact, according to the report, Harry was training for a marathon.
According to the report, Harry’s “heart demonstrated coronary artery atherosclerosis including up to 10% stenosis of left main coronary artery, up to 50% stenosis, focally, of the proximal left anterior descending coronary and 20-40% stenosis of the proximal left circumflex coronary artery.”
It continued, “In, Mr. Morton’ case, given the presence of coronary artery atherosclerosis and myocardial bridging along with the absence of any other toxicologic, anatomic, histologic, molecular, or microbiologic cause of death, the most likely cause of death is probable cardiac arrhythmia due to myocardial bridging with coronary artery atherosclerosis. Based on history, circumstances, and/or autopsy, as I currently know them, the manner of death is natural.”
Investigators collected several prescription medications from Harry’s home including sleep medication, but none of them showed up in his system, and the coroner does not believe any of them were a cause of his sudden death.
As we reported, the report confirms Harry’s brother found him dead on the bathroom floor after he didn’t show up to the gym and didn’t return text messages.
Tragically, it says his brother was able to see him through and window and broke the glass on the outside of his suite to get to his brother. Paramedics rushed to the scene, to try and perform life-saving procedures, but he was pronounced dead.
Morton died without a will, and his father, Billionaire Peter Morton filed documents in L.A County Courts to take control of his $17 Million estate. Peter says Harry’s current net worth is $17,293,187.
