Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins was loaded with drugs when he died, according to an autopsy issued in Colombia, where he died Friday.
Colombian officials said that the drummer’s heart weighed “at least 600 grams,” more than twice what a normal heart would weigh, according to the Mirror.
Colombian media is ascribing Hawkins’s death to cardiovascular collapse brought on by an overdose of heroin, antidepressants and benzodiazepines.
Colombian journalist Luis Carlos Velez said that in Hawkins’s room, “Colombian authorities found an empty beer can, an opened bottle of vodka, a Coca-Cola bottle and some other articles, which are being analyzed by authorities,” according to the Daily Mail.
