Jeff Conaway


Months after the 'Grease' actor passed away a day after being taken off life support, the Los Angeles County Coroner rules his death as accidental and explains why a toxicology test was not conducted.

Months after his passing, the cause of Jeff Conaway's death has finally been made public. On Friday, September 30, the Los Angeles County coroner's office released the results of the "Grease" actor's autopsy, revealing that his death was caused by multiple internal infections.

In the coroner's report, heart valve infection, pneumonia, coronary artery disease and encephalopathy, which is a brain disorder resulting from drug overdoses, are listed among the factors contributing to Jeff's death at the age of 60. It also uncovered that his death has been ruled as accidental.

Los Angeles County coroner Craig Harvey additionally noted that a toxicology test was not conducted on the "Taxi" star. On the reason why, he explained that the actor's blood would have come back clean because he had been hospitalized for weeks before he passed away a day after he was taken off life support.

Jeff was admitted to the hospital on May 10 after being found unconscious in his home. Craig said that at the time, opiates and other drugs were found in the actor's system. He was put into a medically induced coma a week later, before his family decided to take him off his life support on May 26. He died the following morning.
