Dr. Dre's Son Found Dead

2008-08-26 by Clefable Oathbreaker McKinley | 28 Comments
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – The 20-year-old son of Grammy award-winning rapper and producer Dr. Dre was found dead over the weekend at his home in Woodland Hills, California, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Andre Young Jr. was out with friends Friday night and his mother later found him "unresponsive in bed" when she tried to wake him early Saturday morning, coroner's spokesman Ed Winter told Reuters. She immediately called paramedics, who later pronounced Young dead at the scene.

An autopsy was conducted and the cause of death is still pending toxicology and other tests, which may take six weeks or more, Winter said.

Maybe he choked in his sleep. An old buddy of mine and also a distant relative to me died in their sleep, supposedly choking on their vomit.
