According to the coroner, drugs in the popular singer’s bloodstream included the narcotic pain relievers Vicodin, Percocet and Darvocet, plus anxiety medication Xanax and two over-the-counter antihistamines.
The official cause of death was acute intoxication, and the death was ruled accidental. The autopsy also revealed that Levert had pneumonia.
According to reports, Levert took the pain meds for chronic shoulder pain and pain stemming from a 2005 surgery to repair a severed Achilles tendon. He also took Xanax to cope with anxiety attacks.
As previously reported, Levert’s posthumous album, In My Songs, is due Feb. 13.
