Slayer Guitarist Cause of Death Found

Posted by - 07:24 PM on 05/09/13
The official cause of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman's death has been ruled as alcohol-related cirrhosis.
We've just learned that the official cause of Jeff's death was alcohol related cirrhosis. While he had his health struggles over the years, including the recent Necrotizing fasciitis infection that devastated his well-being, Jeff and those close to him were not aware of the true extent of his liver condition until the last days of his life. Contrary to some reports, Jeff was not on a transplant list at the time of his passing, or at any time prior to that. In fact, by all accounts, it appeared that he had been improving he was excited and looking forward to working on a new record.

Sad, but not unexpected at all. Of course he drank.

I guess the FB page of people toasting drinks to him isn't looking so good now.

Yikes, that's too bad, especially since his health was improving.

Had a dark feeling it'd turn out that was the cause, truly a shame.

I could have told you that. You don't die from liver failure at 40 from a 3 month old spider bite. Very sad. This disease continues to unforgivingly take lives every day. Thankfully, recovery is possible!
