Tom Petty’s Family Reveals Cause of Death

The family of rock legend Tom Petty say a coroner’s report determined his cause of death was an accidental overdose from taking a variety of medications.

Unfortunately Tom’s body suffered from many serious ailments including emphysema, knee problems and most significantly a fractured hip.
Despite this painful injury he insisted on keeping his commitment to his fans and he toured for 53 dates with a fractured hip and, as he did, it worsened to a more serious injury.
On the day he died he was informed his hip had graduated to a full on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his over use of medication.

Here’s the message released on the Heartbreakers’ Facebook page.
