He was due to be transported to a clinic in Cleveland and be placed on an organ donor’s list but he passed away on Tuesday.
According to TMZ, the report noted that Slice did not have a history of illicit drug use and trauma and foul play were not suspected in his death.
The Medical Examiner’s office’s says the report shows why they decided not complete an autopsy.
