    Heavy D's autopsy has proven inconclusive and the coroner said that the cause of death can't be determined without toxicology tests.

    Heavy D died last Tuesday at the age of 44.

    The LA Times reports that it could take several more weeks to determine what killed the big man. Drugs were not found in the rapper's home, but he had been prescribed medicine to battle a cough. The toxicologists need to see what was in the rapper's system to come up with a clearer picture of the cause of death. Sources report that he was fighting pneumonia-like symptoms when he collapsed and died.

    R.I.P., Heavy D.
