Autopsy shows no sign of illicit drugs, alcohol at time of Maradona's death
Diego Maradona's autopsy discovered traces of drugs used to treat anxiety and depression, but no illicit drugs or alcohol were in his system at the time of his death, a toxicology report stated, according to ESPN's Adriana Garcia.
It found that heart failure was the primary cause of death and that there was damage to Maradona's heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver.
The report is part of an ongoing investigation into possible manslaughter. Around 30 officers raided the office and home of Maradona's doctor, Dr. Leopoldo Luque, on Nov. 29 to gather potential evidence and establish whether the Argentinian icon received appropriate care after undergoing brain surgery.
Maradona died on Nov. 25 at the age of 60.
The findings prompted one of Maradona's daughters, Gianinna, to condemn those who suspected he died of an overdose.
"All the motherf------ waiting for my dad's autopsy to reveal drugs, marijuana, and alcohol," she wrote on Twitter. "I am not a doctor but I saw him very swollen. That robotic voice. It wasn't his voice."
