Avenged Sevenfold drummer died of accidental overdose

Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan died on 28th December 2009 and his death has been ruled as an accidental overdose of prescription drugs and alcohol. Toxicology reports indicate that Sullivan suffered “acute polydrug intoxication due to combined effects of Oxycodone, Oxymorphone, Diazepam/Nordiazepam and ethanol,” according to Orange County Deputy Coroner Mitchell Sigal. Sigal added that Sullivan also had cardiomegaly (an enlarged heart), which was marked in the coroner’s report as a “significant condition” that may have played a role in the drummer’s death. The Coroner’s Department conducted “five or six” different tests to verify the cause of death, Sigal added.
