Ric Ocasek died of heart disease.
The frontman for the Cars was found dead Sept. 15 in his New York apartment by his estranged wife, Paulina Porizkova. He'd recently undergone an unnamed surgical procedure; she described his death as "unexpected and untimely," as he was expected to make a full recovery.
According to the Daily News, New York City's medical examiner has determined that the cause of death was hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Ocasek also suffered from pulmonary emphysema, which also contributed to his death.
