Examiner: Cardiovascular Disease Caused Moses Malone's Death

Posted:

NORFOLK, Va. (AP)- The Virginia medical examiner's office says Hall of Fame basketball player Moses Malone's death was caused by cardiovascular disease.
    
Malone was found dead in a Norfolk hotel Sunday morning. He was 60.
    
On Monday, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said Malone died of natural causes. The cause of Malone's death was listed as hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
    
A friend of Malone says the former NBA star saw a doctor about an irregular heart beat less than a week before he died.
    
Kevin Vergara said Malone went to a doctor in Houston after he felt his heart skip a beat. Vergara said Malone had a heart monitor issued by the doctor on when he found him in the hotel room.
