An investigative report on KTLA anchor Chris Burrous has determined that his cause of death was attributed to methamphetamine toxicity, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. Burrous, 43, was found unconscious at a motel in Glendale, Calif on December 27, and later died at the hospital. The death has been ruled as accidental.

The coroner’s report said that in addition to the Class A drug, “Other contributing factors include hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.”

Why do they usually rule accidental in drug overdoses?

Way too much TMI. The masses, ie general public, do not need to know all the intimate details of his passing. Why does the media think they should publish every last detail about anyone? His poor wife and young daughter will now be the victims of this public knowledge. His daughter, especially, doesn't need to know this about her father. But of course now all of her school friends know, SMH........

Because usually there's no evidence that it was intentional.

And I'm pretty sure very few people decide to off themselves with meth in a hotel room with a prostitute.

During the encounter, Burrous inserted two “rocks” of crystal meth through his rectum before falling unconscious.



That doesn't sound dangerous at all.....

What earthly good would this information do for anyone to know except the coroner?

Isn't it a problem with HIPAA for medical examiners to release the cause of a person's death to the public? I would think medical privacy rights apply even to deceased persons. The public does not need to know all these details. It is nobody's business.

I feel bad for whoever had to retrieve those "meth rocks".....or maybe they just said, "Ya know, he's not really going anywhere with them out anyway."
