Celebrity deaths, and the people who love how they died.

The death of martial arts and movie legend Bruce Lee is investigated tonight on ReelzChannel’s docuseries Autopsy: The Last Hours Of… — with host Dr. Michael Hunter asking whether he died of undiagnosed epilepsy.

Lee had complained of a headache earlier while visiting his friend, actress Betty Ting Pei, at her home, before she gave him the analgesic Equagesic, which contained both aspirin and meprobamate.

After taking the medication, he went to take a nap before dinner

Dr Hunter says: “The coroner’s report states that Judy Garland died of an overdose prescription medications.”

But he adds: “There were

Forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter said: “The official verdict was that she died of a drug overdose, but in my opinion it’s never that simple.”

On the show he reveals Joplin’s coroner’s report noted “a number of prescription pills used to treat insomnia as well

Kerri Responds: This Lawsuit is Frivolous

Last night we reached out to Kerri Kasem to get her reaction to the lawsuit file by Jean. Kerri told Radio Ink, “This frivolous lawsuit was filed because Jean Kasem thinks that this will delay her own wrongful death suit and confuse people about what really happened to my dad. She never served anyone that she names in the suit and she could not get a lawyer to take the case on so she’s going “pro se.”
