Vinnie Paul’s Cause of Death “Still Pending”


Although previous reports have suggested that Vinnie Paul died from a major heart attack, The Las Vegas Review-Journal now says officials claim it’s too soon to know for sure:

“Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin said today that official cause of Paul’s death is still pending and would likely take several days to be issued.”

An official police report also notes that the drummer’s death “did not appear suspicious”:

“According to records of the event, officers were dispatched to a dead-body call at 5:41 p.m. Friday on the 6900 block of Procyon Street (Paul lived on Procyon). Medical personnel were summoned, and Paul was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Metro spokeswoman Laura Meltzer added that responding officers did not take such further action as calling homicide detectives to the scene, further indication that Paul was considered medically deceased.”
