Posted By on January 3, 2009

    Dr Dre's son died of an accidental drug overdose. A toxicology report shows that Andre R. Young Jr. died of "morphine and heroin intoxication" according to Ed Winter, assistant chief of the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

    As previously reported, Dre's 20 year-old son was found dead in August at the family's Woodland Hills home. Young's mother found him dead at 10:24 a.m on August 23rd. An initial autopsy was completed a few days later but the results were delayed pending the outcome of a "gamut of tests, including toxicology," Winter said.

    A publicist for Dr Dre, Lori Earl, stated "Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son. Please respect his family's grief and privacy at this time."
