Accidents Will Happen? Did Apnea and Drank Really Kill Pimp C?

If the verdict from Pimp C’s autopsy leaves you with more questions than answers you are not alone. Matt Sonzala still has his doubts.

He writes:

“Two months later, on Feb. 4, the L.A. County Coroner's Office concluded that Pimp C's death was the result of sleep apnea combined with prescription-strength cough syrup found in his system. Why did it take two months to reach this conclusion? The bottle was in his room and he had already been diagnosed with sleep apnea years earlier.

“I’m no detective, and I’m certainly not a coroner, so I’m not going to speculate any further. But it's this reporter's opinion that something is not right with the coroner's investigation.”
