Kidd Kraddick Cause of Death: Cardiac Disease

Nationally syndicated radio host Kidd Kraddick shockingly passed away over the weekend at the young age of 53 and the official cause of death is cardiac disease.

“His heart was enlarged,” coroner Granville Morse told the Dallas Morning News. “You have several vessels, and three were diseased — the worst of which was 80 percent blocked. That combination, an enlarged heart and cardiac disease, when someone dies like this it’s usually dysrhythmia,” which leads to an irregular heartbeat.

“What happens is your heart goes into a non-perfusable rhythm,” he added, saying that Kidd likely died quickly. “In English that means: imagine you turned off the faucet for the blood to go back to the brain. It not only doesn’t get to the brain, but it doesn’t get to the heart. Both stop working simultaneously.”

We continue to send our condolences to Kidd‘s family and friends during this difficult time.
