Toxicology Test Ordered For Dr. Dre’s Son

The mystery behind the death of rap legend Dr. Dre’s son has still not been solved nearly a week after he died. Andre Young Jr. (†20) was found lifeless in his bed by his mother on Saturday, August 23 – but the cause of death remains unclear after an initial autopsy performed this week. “We don’t know yet why he died. There were no signs of trauma or foul play,” police captain Ed Winter was quoted as saying by

Additional tests and toxicology reports are expected to bring more conclusive evidence in the coming weeks. Some have speculated that alcohol and drugs were at least partly to blame.

The 20-year-old had partied with friends the night before and returned home late. When his mother tried to wake him the next day, she found him unconscious. The emergency doctor she called pronounced him dead.

His mother claims that she had heard him snoring that morning at 5:30am.

The tragic death was a blow to Dr. Dre. One of the USA’s most important hip hop producers, Dre has worked with big names like 50 Cent, Eminem and Snoop Dog. In 2002, ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine ranked him as the second highest-earning mogul in the music business.
