Stephen Gately died of natural causes

Posted on

According to CNN.com, an autopsy conducted on Boyzone’s Stephen Gately revealed the singer died of natural causes. A court spokeswoman for the Spanish island of Majorca — where Gately passed away Saturday — told reporters that Gately died of acute pulmonary edema, caused by excess fluid in the lungs, and that there were no signs of foul play. The court will also continue to hear testimonies from witnesses. (Gately’s partner, Andrew Cowles, testified today.)
