The Los Angeles coroner’s office says the death of rapper Travis Scott, who died of an apparent suicide by hanging on October 21, was ruled an accident
Travis Scott’s death is being treated as an accident.
The Los Angeles coroner’s office released its findings on Friday, ending a week of speculation surrounding the death of the rapper.
Scott died after being found dead in his Los Angeles home by his bodyguard on Saturday. The coroner’s report shows that Scott died from an asphyxiation due to hanging and ruled his death as accidental.
A private funeral for Scott was held in Houston on Monday, and an official memorial for friends and family will take place in the coming weeks.
According to TMZ, the autopsy was inconclusive and Scott left his debit card at home, which could prove useful in the future.
Citing an unnamed source, TMZ claimed Scott may have been experiencing mental issues before he died.
This was not the first time a celebrity has died by hanging. Jerome Benton, the nephew of the singer Percy Sledge, died by hanging in 2002 and Elvis Presley reportedly killed himself in 1977 with the same method.
