Kile Autopsy Confirms He Died of Blocked Coronary Arteries

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher and former Houston Astro Darryl Kile died from a blockage of the arteries supplying the heart, and there was no evidence that drug use contributed to his death. That's the word on Tuesday from the county coroner. The Cook County chief medical examiner in Illinois says Kile died of natural causes.

Toxicology tests did show evidence of marijuana use, but the medical examiner says it was probably from drug use weeks before and didn't contribute to his death. Tests were negative on steroids, alcohol, cocaine, and ephedrine, a substance commonly found in dietary supplements banned by some sports. 33 year-old Kile was found dead in the Cardinal's Chicago hotel on June 22nd.
