Newly-released results point to heroin, cocaine and Xanax found in Rashad Harden's system at the time of his death.
DJ Rashad's death was due to a drug overdose, according to an autopsy.
Rashad Harden passed away at age 34 this past April 26th. At the time, the circumstances of his death were unknown—a police report mentioned "drug paraphernalia," and early rumours pointed to an overdose, but the initial autopsy was ruled inconclusive. Following that, it was reported that Harden had died of a blood clot, but those rumours were shot down by his family.
Finally, yesterday, the Chicago Sun-Times claimed to have obtained autopsy results that blamed a drug overdose for the untimely death. Today, NBC Chicago has confirmed, citing a statement from the local medical examiner which said the autopsy found heroin, cocaine and Xanax (a prescription drug) in Harden's system, and that the death was an accident.
