Report that the heart attack the 'Green Mile' actor had last July played part in his passing is sort of confirmed by his personal doctor.
There's no foul play in Michael Clarke Duncan's death, it was confirmed by the Coroner Office. Assistant Coroner Chief Ed Winter announced the actor's personal doctor confirmed he died of natural causes. There's no plan to investigate the case further since they found no contradicting report.
The bodyguard-turned-actor "suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered." Many believed that the heart attack led to the gentle giant's death. He passed away at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Monday, September 3. He was 54.
His fiancee, Omarosa Stallworth, tweeted, "Thank you for your outpouring of love and support for my beloved Michael. ... He will truly be missed!" A representative for the "Green Mile" star added, "Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date."
Stallworth saved Duncan's life when he suffered a heart attack in July. She gave him CPR and stayed by his side in hospital ever since. "She was literally there every second," a source told PEOPLE. "She is a strong woman who is full of faith, but right now she is heartbroken."
