LOS ANGELES: There’s no foul play in actor Michael Clarke Duncan’s death, confirms the Coroner’s Office. His personal doctor also confirmed he died of natural causes.
There’s no plan to investigate the case further since they found no contradicting report.
The bodyguard-turned-actor suffered a myocardial infarction July 13 and never fully recovered. Many believed that the heart attack led to his death. He passed away here at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Monday. He was 54.
His fiancee, Omarosa Stallworth, tweeted: “Thank you for your outpouring of love and support for my beloved Michael. He will truly be missed!”
A representative for Duncan added: “Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date.”
Stallworth saved Duncan’s life when he suffered a heart attack in July. She gave him CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and stayed by his side in hospital ever since.
“She was literally there every second. She is a strong woman who is full of faith, but right now she is heartbroken,” people.com quoted a source as saying.
