The autopsy for fallen Kris Kross member Chris Kelly has been completed. The medical examiner found no signs of trauma or foul play, leaving the search for answers to the cause of his untimely death at age 34 to the results of the toxicology report. The report should be available within three to four weeks.
Drugs are largely believed to be the reason behind Kelly’s death. His mother, Donna Kelly Pratte, told police that the evening prior to his death he had consumed speedballs, a combination of cocaine and heroin. She had help him recover, as she had in the past after his many other drug episodes.
Kelly was found lying on his living room couch showing no signs of life on Wednesday (May 1) afternoon. Paramedics could not revive him. Fulton County police are already investigating the death as a drug overdose.
