Decedent: ANGEL GEORGE (PROFESSOR)
Date of Death: Monday 24th of February 2014
Cause of Death: Natural causes (Myocardial infarction)
Autopsy Performed by: WILLIS DEBORAH, MD
Professor Angel reportedly collapsed on the street and passers by immediately called an ambulance. Medics were unable to revive him at the scene and hospital staff had no better luck. Blood tests showed positive for botulinum toxin of types A, B, E and F though the source of the poisoning is hard to determine.
Professor Angel was of advanced age and had not been eating well. He appeared below weight with a generally poor state of health which explains his lack of resistance to the toxin.
While there are contusions, scrapes and bruises on the body these appear to have been sustained when he collapsed and are not a cause for additional concern.
