AceShowbiz - Brandi Mallory's cause of death has been revealed. According to an autopsy report, the former star of "Extreme Weight Loss" died at the age of 40 in November from complications of obesity.
Obtained by TMZ on Monday, December 4, the report revealed that the reality TV star, who was found dead in a Chipotle parking lot in Atlanta, Ga., on November 9, suffered from an enlarged heart. She also had elevated blood indicators which suggested she had prediabetes.
The report further showed that Brandi consumed marijuana and alcohol prior to her death. However, those factors didn't contribute to her death, which was deemed "natural."
Brandi's death was confirmed by a representative for the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Officer. The memorial service for Brandi was held in Lithonia on November 19, while the funeral took place the following day.
It was revealed that Brandi was last seen alive when she was out to buy some food from a local Chipotle. The owner of an adjacent deli later noticed that her vehicle was parked in a lot of a strip mall early on November 9. According to surveillance footage, Brandi pulled into the parking lot the night prior around 5:53 P.M.
The deli owner called the cops when he saw a female inside the car, seemingly sleeping. He said that the alarm bells started ringing much later in the day and that was when Brandi was found lifeless inside the vehicle.
Addressing Brandi's passing, a fellow sorority sister paid tribute to the star in a heartfelt Facebook post. "It is with great sadness that we inform our CAU Family that our linesister Brandi Mallory, 31-Σ-11, passed away yesterday. This was sudden and unexpected," she said.
She went on to call the Clark Atlanta University alum "a bright light" who had a "beautiful smile" that lit up any room she entered." She added, "She loved with her whole heart and embraced life's challenges head-on. Her talent as a make-up artist opened doors for her and made room for her to expand and grown.
