An autopsy at the time showed Bruce had died from brain swelling, which doctors blamed on him taking a painkiller.

His untimely death sparked rumors that he may have been assassinated or poisoned.

Another theory was that he died from heatstroke.

Now, researchers have reviewed the evidence to rule that Bruce actually likely died of hyponatremia.

The study claims Bruce had multiple risk factors for hyponatremia, including that he was drinking high quantities of liquid, using cannabis which increases thirst as well as other factors that decrease the ability of the kidneys, such as the use of prescription drugs and alcohol.
