Since when is it “natural” for a 34 year old to die from a “double pulmonary embolism”?
Autopsy: Vandenbroucke died of natural causes
The results of an autopsy performed in Senegal indicate that cyclist Frank Vandenbroucke died of a double pulmonary embolism combined with an existing heart problem, Belgian newspapers reported Saturday.
. . . According to reports published in Het Laatste Nieuws and Het Nieuwsblad, investigators concluded that Vandenbroucke died a natural death and his body had now been released for a return to Belgium.
The rider suffered a “double pulmonary embolism as well as having an existing heart problem”, Salobe Ngingie, the public prosecutor for the Thies region overseeing the probe, told Het Nieuwsblad. A pulmonary embolism is a blockage of the main artery of the lung or one of its branches, usually caused by a blood clot.
While officials determined that Vandenbroucke’s death was from natural causes, there were indications of drug and alcohol abuse.
“The autopsy showed that deceased had several injection marks on his left arm,” Ngingie said, adding that a syringe, alcohol and medicines were found in Vandenbroucke’s hotel room.
