The Medical Examiner has finally concluded their research on Vinnie Paul, and has finally released the Pantera drummer’s cause of death. 

According to Billboard, “Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg announced Monday that Paul, whose full name was Vincent Paul Abbott, died June 22 at home in Las Vegas from cardiomyopathy, or an enlarged heart. Coronary artery disease was identified as a significant condition in his death.”

While fans still mourn the loss of Paul, it is good to finally have closure as to how and why he died. May he rest in peace.
