The most interesting piece of info was that the rapper was shot four times, hitting his colon, liver, heart and the upper lobe of his left lung.
This news was interesting enough for us to delve around the Internets a little bit and try to find other fascinating facts autopsies have told us about some of our fave late celebrities.

Whitney Houston’s struggles with crack cocaine are well known. One of the unfortunate consequences of long time drug abusers is tooth decay, which would explain why Whitney was wearing dentures at the time of her death.
No drugs were found in Amy Winehouse’s system.
When news came out that Amy Winehouse passed, the Internet assumed it was because of drug use, due to the singer’s history with crack/cocaine. This speculation ended up being false.

Brittany Murphy’s struggles with illegal substances were well known. But similar to Amy Winehouse, no illegal drugs were found in the singer’s system. The actress’s death was ruled an accident, caused by combination of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication from over counter pills. Interestingly enough, it was confirmed that Brittany had diabetes.
