Matthew Perry toxicology reports provide insight into how star may have died: former medical examiner

Matthew Perry’s death investigation continues to raise more questions than answers six days after his death, according to a former medical examiner.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner on Sunday told Fox News Digital, “An autopsy was completed today, and toxicology results are pending.” 

Following reports that a toxicology screening revealed fentanyl and meth were not found in his system at the time of his death, Dr. Michael Baden, former chief medical examiner of New York City, forensic pathologist and Fox News contributor wondered why a cause of death had not yet been released.

“If Matthew Perry had died of a heart attack, that would be immediately apparent, and they would have said so,” Baden exclusively told Fox News Digital. “Where we stand now is in their relief part of the toxicology, and that indicates that for some reason they’re holding up the rest of it.”
